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 soundscape is quite diverse with pop, country and jazz flavours adding to the blues foundation and their live performances showcase their skills, energy and enthusiasm – they sure do get the toes tapping! The Riders have recorded 3 CDs and the 4th is in the pipeline.
