Chris Russell's Chicken Walk
For two and a half years, Chicken Walk was just Chris playing solo with just an open tuned sea foam green Danelectro and a Goldentone reverbmaster for company on stage. His annual pilgrimages with his wife to the Mississippi Delta facilitated his evolution from sitting in with the local living masters, to performing the prized Juke Joints with Cadillac John Nolden, The Corn Lickers, Cameron Kimbrough and Lightnin’ Malcolm.
Today Diamond Dave Folley packs heat on drums and this two-piece live sound seems impossibly larger than the sum of its parts, filling rooms with hypnotic boogie bypassing the mind and heading straight for the hips. Endless, droning, head nodding ol’ North Mississippi Hill Country blues.
