Mark Ford & the Blue Line
Mark Ford is truely one of the most unique blues artists performing today. Though Paul Butterfield was his inspiration he has always been an original in both his harp playing and his song writing. Along with his brothers Robben and Patrick Ford, Mark has continued the family tradition of doing whatever feels right and not worrying about what others might say about the right or wrong way to play the blues. On these recordings he is once again backed up by his brother Robben, and his band the Blue Line, and he is produced by his brother Patrick. The songs go from moody to all out fun and the words go from silly to quite serious at times. This release features harp playing like few can do it and the energy of Mark and the band is enough to excite and satisfy anyone.
