RED TAIL RING:
Red Tail Ring is fresh off their fourth full-length studio release, Fall Away Blues, which features new songwriting fused with old-time and country blues sounds and themes. The album tackles topical subjects such as gun violence and environmentalism as well as age-old questions of place and love. With guitar, banjo, fiddle and mandolin, along with close harmony singing, Laurel Premo and Michael Beauchamp dont just pay homage to vintage folk and roots music: The Kalamazoo duo breathes new life into it, channeling the power and charm of seminal material into their own original songs. John Sinkevics, LocalSpins.com. Over seven years of touring, Red Tail Ring has performed their brand of acoustic roots at many notable venues and festivals around the United States (including the Wheatland Music Festival, Club Passim, The Ark, World Cafe Live), and have been well received by audiences over seas in Denmark, Germany and Sweden.
SHARI KANE & DAVE STEELE:
"Shari Kane is an excellent guitarist. Next to Johnny Shines, she is the best interpreter of Robert Johnson's material that I have ever heard." - Robert Jones, Blues From The Lowlands,WDET-FM, Detroit, MI
"Dave plays the meanest rhythm guitar line Ive heard in a long time. More Charley Christian and T-Bone Walker..." - William Shea, Agenda
"You either can do the blues or you can't. Kane can. She has the background, the ability to whip her voice into a growl and play some, yes, kicking slide guitar." - Jill Hamilton, Ann Arbor News
"Daves smoke blue vocal is like pure poetry. From a songwriting standpoint, this man does more with a blues shuffle than I thought possible." - Bruce J. Miller, Real Blues
"...slamming rhythms, biting slide...string-snapping and note-slurring tricks that set fire to guitar..."
- Blues Revue
