SUGAR HARP When Charles Burroughs was eight years old his great grandfather would blow harp and strum a handmade guitar formed from an orange crate and broom sticks. To witness his’ “down in the gutter, back alley, storytelling blues” today, it is clear that he inherited his great grandfather’s creativity and musical talent. Since he first picked up the harmonica, he has more than earned his moniker, Sugar Harp
 
GAIL CEASAR was born in Pittsville, Virginia; the small town that her family has called home for generations, a rich lineage of oral storytellers and musicians. She has found a beautiful sound of her own that melds the two genres. Gail’s music re-imagines generations of traditional tunes with incredible precision and depth of tone. You can imagine sitting round a porch, feeling right at home.
