Bukka's Bad Trip, 2007 CD
by Andy & Michael Futreal

Haunted off and on by the ghost of Bukka White, Andy and I recorded most of these largely improvisational tracks live in Shreveport and Cambridge. It's part primitive Americana, part post-blues, and mostly acoustic, featuring guitar, Appalachian dulcimer, gourdtar, bass, banjo and harmonica.

Bukka

Who is Bukka?

Bukka White (1909-1977) was a guitar & piano playing Delta blues singer. Famously, he was a friend and inspiration to both Howlin' Wolf and B.B. King. You can read more about Bukka on Wikipedia.

During the Cambridge recording session for this disc, we spent some down time drinking dark beer and listening to Bukka. Not surprisingly, this culminated in the dark-blues title track.
