Peter Murchison ( vocals/guitar/slide guitar/)
Peter Murchison is a fingerpicking guitarist and also plays slide guitar and mandolin. His music is a melting pot of pre-war blues, bluegrass, and folk. He has played with beat poet Allen Ginsberg and he has toured the world playing in the US, Asia, Europe and South America. Murchison's fingerpicking style is crisp and driving. He plays the early blues of the thirties and forties, these include Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Blake as well as the great country pickers Doc Watson and Merle Travis. His modern influences include Leo Kottke, John Fahey and Jerry Garcia. He has been a prizewinner in numerous contests in the US.
Claudio Curro' (harmonica)
An Italian who started to listen to blues music in his early teens, he developed a passion for the harmonica and began to dig into Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Sonny Terry and all the great masters of the Chicago area. In the late nineties he recorded harmonica for China's very first blues artist Hang Tian; this milestone recording gave China a first hint of blues harmonica, influencing a whole generation of local musicians. After a time spent teaching in various music schools, Claudio spent time approaching a new style of harmonica playing, based on the so-called overblowing technique pionereed by modern players such as Howard Levy, Jason Ricci and Carlos del Junco. In 2006 he joined the E-Tone Blues Band and then worked as a technical and design consultant for a harmonicas' production factory.
