One of the youngest old-school blues guitarists and singers at just 32, Mamie Minch sings and plays songs of her own devising that sound like they've been stored in her old National guitar for decades. Raised on the music of John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, and Memphis Minnie, Minch can sometimes sound like her predecessors, but don't mistake her for a revivalist: she is most definitely a product of her own time. Her musicianship and writing are so singular that she establishes her own musical reality with its own stylistic chronology. She played solo in the galleries during MASS MoCA's FreshGrass bluegrass festival in September 2012. Now she hits the stage with full band in tow for this performance.
