5th Annual Tangerine Blues Fest headliner: Sean Chambers
Guitar World Interview:
"Chambers' brand of blues is a no-frills blend of Chicago, Texas, and Delta styles, played with an understated sense of ferocity. Sean came to wail, and he does so with a transparent sense of devotion and scholarship to the music he plays so well." -
Mark Uricheck, LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE
“Smoking! Blues Rock played with an intense inner fire that just gets hotter and hotter and deeper and deeper! Sean Chambers is the real deal, and the devil just may have gotten the worst of that trade.”
- Robert Carraher - THE DIRTY LOWDOWN
“”Chambers is a bad ass, a monster and the torch bearer that's leading and lighting the way for the next generation of players and fans. And live, he goes from blistering to incendiary. Check it out!” ”
- CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher - MIDWEST RECORD CHICAGO
"Chambers toured with Hubert Sumlin, the esteemed elder gent's musical director and guitarist for five years, and not only learned at his feet but ran way ahead in the lesson book and wrote a few new chapters as well. It just doesn't get much better than this."
- Mark S. Tucker - The Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
"Guitarist" magazine named Chambers as one of the Top 50 Blues Guitarists of the Last Century, and with sets such as "Ten Til Midnight," it's easy to see why!"
- Sheryl and Don Crow - Nashville Blues Society
