Some Ol’ Day


Formed in Colchester in 1991 Rag Mama Rag have slowly and consistently built up their reputation as one of Europe’s finest country blues acts. With an interesting and wide range of instruments, the duo create an exceptionally full and hard driving rhythmic sound which soon has audience’s feet tapping. Their repertoire is 20s and 30s blues-based encompassing Mississippi blues, East Coast ragtime sounds, early white country tunes, original compositions and many other regional styles of that period. Touring non-stop in Europe during the last ten years Rag Mama Rag have clocked up well over 2,000 concerts and have played at many major festivals in France, Belgium and Germany. This album was arranged, recorded, mixed and mastered by the pair at Deep Valley Studios in Lot, France.
