Stats for this track
Ewan D. Rodgers was brought up in a small Yorkshire town and currently lives in Brighton where he has been performing regularly for the past year. Ewan is an accomplished, self-taught musician; his main instruments include guitar, 5-string banjo and diatonic accordion. Ewan lists British folk and blues players such as Davy Graham, Bert Jansch and Nic Jones as his main musical influences, however a closer listen to his performances reveal influences from as far away as the Appalachian Mountains, the sheep-stations of New South Wales and the Shtetls of old Eastern Europe.
East Virginia Blues is taken from Ewan's forthcoming Folk Police album, Tomorrow Might be Monday, which includes several original compositions as well as re-interpretations of traditional French and Eastern European folk songs performed on Diatonic Accordion, guitar and musical saw. In addition to his studio recordings, Ewan's live performances continue to provide stripped down folk and blues, old-time banjo and the odd disgruntled sounding rag.
