Rising up from the dusty Delta lowlands and muddy bayou banks of Indianola, Mississippi through the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, comes the unique Southern Soul sound of Blue Mother Tupelo.

Blue Mother Tupelo, the husband and wife team of Ricky and Micol Davis, deliver deep Mississippi Delta Blues seasoned with a delicious and eclectic blend of musical spice. Formed in 1995, the duo has paid their dues in Southern juke joints and festivals here and abroad, sharing the stage with some of the blues’ living legends.

It’s been said that a Blue Mother Tupelo performance is like stepping into a “pentecostal revival” — with Ricky and Micol’s gritty, sweet, soulful harmonies, earthy sounds of gutbucket guitar and slide, gospel piano & roadhouse pounding of tambourines. But the foundation to all of their work is to channel what is innately deep within them and to let it come forth naturally without definitions or restrictions.

Blue Mother Tupelo has been nominated several years in a row as “Best Acoustic Blues Act” and Micol as “Female Vocalist of the Year” by the Music City Blues Society in Nashville.

“It’s Tupelo, honey… the songs blend N’Awlins-style blues with spare Appalachian acoustic grit, Southern rock grooves, 60s flower-power dreaminess and rootsy rock. Ricky’s dobro is slick and juicy as a ripe peach and Micol’s voice is both steely and delicate, a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris’ ”

-Tallahassee Democrat

“Like a meal of homegrown vegetables: fresh, authentic, lovingly cared for and hand-crafted. Earthy, gritty, celebratory. It’s a slurry of sound from a grab-bag of Southern soil. The sound of two people not afraid to get that dirt beneath their nails… ”

-The Maryville Daily Times
