    US review of Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run’s BLOOD IN MY EYES FOR YOU

    Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run – Blood In My Eyes For You (Rootsy Records): There aren’t a lot of blues mandolin players on the current blues scene…..Ry Cooder, David Grisman, and Steve James all record the occasional mandolin track, but pickings are pretty slim. Bert Deivert was born and raised in the U.S., but moved to Sweden in the 70’s. He’s worked with a number of musicians in blues, rock, rockabilly, and roots music over the years and has spent time in Mississippi in recent years, playing with some of the local talent. This new release features his interpretation of several classic blues tunes. His mandolin playing really gives these old tunes a new shine and the Swedish band Copperhead Run provides excellent support. There are older tunes from Big Joe Williams, Son House, the Mississippi Sheiks, and Sleepy John Estes, plus newer tunes from Paul “Wine” Jones, R.L. Burnside, and the mandolin legend Yank Rachell. This is a really interesting and unique approach to the blues, thanks to Deivert’s work on the mandolin.

  • That Great Sound!

    Playing the blues might sound easy but finding the right sound is tough!
    Since I started to play with the lads it has been such a joy! Always laughs, great coffe and making great music. I have never considered my self to be a blues musician. But after 6 months with the band I now start to know what it is all about. The secret? Play with your heart and play with the best!

    What about the sound? Take a look I think I am on to something, http://youtu.be/X3BeRtujivA
