The Mad Dog Blues Duo

The Mad Dog Blues Duo offers an innovative take on contemporary acoustic blues.  With Sean Bennight on guitar and Mad Dog Friedman on harmonica, the creative energy is palpable.  The Mad Dog Blues Duo gives new vibrancy to the classic guitar-harmonica blues duo sound while drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional blues masters. Take a walk with the Mad Dog Blues Duo. It’s like exploring an exciting, new world of original blues in a favorite old pair of shoes.

  • Listen now to a live radio interview and performance about the inspiration for the Mad Dog Blues Duo's new album, River City Roots, recorded on KGNU's Blues Legacy Show with host Dan "Big Daddy" Willging on January 6, 2023.
  • "Shining Through" off of River City Roots was just premiered John Lamp's "Tempo" radio show on 94.7 FM on the Pulse in Geelong, Australia. This World Premier is followed by an excellent audio review of the song by John Lamp. You can listen now to the 9 minute excerpt with both the song and the review as played on Monday, March 6, 2023. Enjoy and feel free to share. Here's some of the text from John Lamp's review:

    Now when you're playing as a duo rather than your usual band combination, the challenges are much greater.  There's no place to hide. You have to be precise. You have to work together. You almost have to be psychic to make it work. In this case there's guitar, vocal and harmonica. You can hear the guitar carrying the tempo and laying down a tune to follow. Over this is the vocal, timed to perfection with the guitar and then the harmonica adding embellishments between the vocals. Now that's all before you look at the song itself. The song is a classic blues theme of loss and persistence in the face of disappointment. I think they've absolutely succeeded in creating their front porch context, with a simple, effective piece you can see being sung in a relaxing evening. This one's going straight to the pool room.
    ~  John Lamp, DJ at 94.7 FM on the Pulse in Geelong, Australia
