Delta Panhandlers / Bio

If Western Swing is what happens when the roots of New Orleans jazz sprout up in the prairie, the Delta Panhandlers are what you get when you transplant a cutting back into the fertile alluvial loam of the Crescent City. Here's where the Ol' Chisum Trail crosses Frenchmen Street and "where y'at" wears a cowboy hat. Here we have 5 enthusiastic and highly seasoned musical veterans (and their occasional friends) with a unique take on the music of folks like Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, the Light Crust Doughboys... in fact all those old boys whose tunes we know and love.
