Elegant country blues and vibrant good-time roots music from these British Blues Award nominees. With powerful songs and punchy vocals, this is one phenomenal live band.

'The musicianship is unsurpassable, the songwriting is excellent.' Blues in Britain Magazine ______________________________________________________________________

Oliver Carpenter: vocals, trumpet | Chris Lomas: guitar | Phil Bond: piano, squeezebox

Led by two of the Midlands' most experienced Blues musicians, Oliver Carpenter and Chris Lomas, and featuring top piano and squeezebox player, Phil Bond, Mumbo-Jumbo produce a sound all of their own. They play uplifting, original songs plus rarely-heard rootsy tunes and some more familiar numbers, all delivered with a real sense of humour.

With their albums 'Life of Riley' and 'Sonic Gumbo' getting rave reviews and lots of radio airplay, plus a nomination in the British Blues Awards for Best Songwriting, festival favourites Mumbo-Jumbo strike a wonderful rapport with the audience wherever they play. ______________________________________________________________________
