Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers (from the album The Christmas Swing available on Juicy Juju Records)
Handclaps and scratchy rhythms accompany Erin Harpe as she spins her own tale in “The Night Before Christmas”. The story is close to origins as Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers add a little sugar, spice, and sass to Santa’s bag of toys. The New England torch-bearers for the music of the South present The Christmas Swing, their first foray from Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers into holiday releases. Front porch Folk tells the tale of festivities “At the Christmas Ball” while The Christmas Swingslinks in on a Blues groove for the title track and blends Blues harp with guitar twang for “Jingle Bell Blues”.
Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers stick to the celebration side of the holidays, soundtracking parties with jump Blues and boogie in The Christmas Swing. Rock’n’Roll is the route taken for “Run Run Rudolph” while Erin Harpe & The Delta Swingers toast naughty in “Merry Christmas (Here I Come)” and make a resolution with whiskey and gin for “Drink and Get Drunk” as The Christmas Swingexits the album (and 2018) with “Auld Lang Syne”.
