James Byfield.

A steaming bowl of Delta and Chicago blues, a dash of New Orleans, a hint of country, and a teaspoon of rock, all flavored with a unique songwriting sensibility, create the tasty gumbo that is the music of Blind Lemon Pledge, the Bay Area’s premier acoustic blues band. This San Francisco based duo plays a unique combination of blues classics and Americana, re-imagined rock/pop standards and critically acclaimed originals. Although usually a quintet, Blind Lemon Pledge has stripped down to the essential duo of guitar and bass for this ECFFF performance. Riding on the crest of their internationally acclaimed #1 album “Goin. Home”, eponymous band leader Blind Lemon Pledge brings you skillfully crafted songs in a wide variety of Blues/Americana based styles.
