They played an impassioned set of delta style blues with Brooks on guitar and an array of harps as and Debi adding a variety of  percussion, mostly from a cajon box drum.

 Brooks’ impassioned voice that was equally soulful and blues with a Shel Silverstein tinge. He played beautiful upbeat blues music, witching between several guitars including a battered acoustic and a beautiful resonator.

“Hard Working Man” was a highlight which ended the first set of the show.
 Debi was singing a wonderful version of “Angel From Montgomery” by the time I called it a night.
