What is Blues Contraption
Blues Contraption is a funky, groovin’ trio that plays blues and R&B influenced tunes with a different perspective: slide guitar, bass, and cajon. This line up is simple and flexible, sort of like a street band, which can play anywhere.
Performing slide guitar, in the style of the early Delta blues masters has been an important aspect of Jerry’s playing for years, and it seemed like a good idea to plug it in and add some accompaniment. Thus was born the idea of a contraption: an ensemble that is unusual to see, yet familiar in sound.
The music of Blues Contraption is an eclectic mix of tunes ranging from Delta Gospel-Blues master Blind Willie Johnson to the funkiness of Little Feat.
