The audience is very excited about the power of this music, the composition of the musicians, the fun they have in their game and not least their versatility and spontaneity. It's a novel sound that gets in the blood and gets carried away. It's music for heart and soul ...
Brunn is a masterful guitarist, picking the Piedmont style with natural ease and virtuosic perfection.
Rainer Brunn plays the classic Delta Blues exactly in the tempo in which the paddlewheel is turning to make the steamship a little faster than the Mississippi. His stoical, laid back style and the fluent grooves provide a dense sound.

Rainer´s playing is clean, inventive and true to the tradition. He captures the spirit of the old blues and ragtime players using his strong technique and musicianship to give their songs new life.
Highly recommended!
