The Riders

The Riders play original feel-good blues using 12 and 6 string acoustic guitars, National resonators, drums, washboard and stomp-box. Their songs reflect a variety of influences, most prominent being the country and delta blues, hokum and ragtime from the 1920’s and 30’s.

After 19 years The Riders have developed a depth and maturity that only comes after many gigs and lots of hard work. Their live performances showcase their skills, energy and enthusiasm – and they sure do get the toes tapping! The Riders have recorded 3 CDs and the 4th is in the pipeline.
