Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan have been making music together for more than 25 years; The duo tours extensively here at home and throughout Europe and have played most of the major blues and folk festivals around the globe. The refreshing thing is their loose, informal quality. Ball and Sultan have developed an engaging repertoire with an emphasis on “good-timey” folk-blues, including guitar-and-harp adaptations of songs from a wide range of blues, R&B, jazz, country, and Tin Pan Alley sources. Whether doing their own or others’ songs, they prefer wry lyrics that offer tongue-in-cheek observations about money, women, luck, and such. This is witty, upbeat good time toe-tapping rather than foot-stomping blues. Clever and highly entertaining.
