Steel Union are Richards Gibson (vox/blues harp) and Turner (vox/bottleneck, slide and acoustic guitar) – an acoustic blues duo hailing from somewhere between the borders of Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. Formed in 2006, they play authentic traditional acoustic blues and spirituals – the songs of great Delta and Country Blues players such as Son House, Robert Johnson, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Bukka White and many more.
More recently Steel Union have branched out into their own, original compositions, drawing on the traditions of the Blues and Spirituals. Their debut album Life…and Other Problems! is available now. This is their first time at Needingworth so make sure y’all give ’em a good welcome now ya hear?
