They were here a year ago and gave a wonderful performance to a full house. We are delighted to

have them return!

Del Rey, based in Seattle, is a world class performer of vintage blues, jazz, country blues, and ragtime,

playing resonator guitar and ukulele, and strongly influenced by the sound and material of Memphis

Minnie from the 20’s and 30’s. An alumnus of UCSC, she and Carl Rey were staples of the music scene in

Santa Cruz 30 years ago.

“Rey is one of the greatest modern players of the metal-bodied resonator guitar”….Acoustic Guitar


Adam Franklin, from the UK, is also an excellent exponent of blues and ragtime from the golden age of

American music. Like Del Rey he plays resonator guitar and ukulele, and has a strong soulful voice.

“…with intensely and deeply felt delivery, Adam plays his heart out”….Catfish Keith

Del and Adam tour together when each is in the other’s country. Not only are they virtuosic musically,

but they are also consummate entertainers, being both engaging and humorous.
