Biography

The popular New England-based Americana band, Amy Black and The Red Clay Rascals may be located in Massachusetts but their influences are clearly from below the Mason-Dixon line. The group’s well-blended mix of blues, folk rock, soul, gospel and bluegrass covers the traditional themes of American roots music: loving, lying, drinking, dying and going to heaven – not necessarily that order.

Amy Black and The Red Clay Rascals (ABRCR) cover many of the greats including Johnny Cash, Robert Johnson, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams and Bonnie Raitt– breathing new life into songs from past generations. ABRCR also weave their own high-quality originals into the mix.

Music writer James Reed of the Boston Globe had this to say in a recent review, “Don’t be fooled by the fact that their set list is mostly covers. Black and her band put their own rootsy Americana stamp on everything from country (Emmylou Harris’s “Red Dirt Girl’’) to soul (Bill Withers’s “Ain’t No Sunshine’’) to rock ’n…’ roll (Big Mama Thornton’s “Hound Dog’’) all highlights from their new self-titled debut.”

Black’s bluesy alto voice is full of texture, depth and soul. She is a versatile singer, able to deliver a moving ballad while also right at home rocking the house. She is backed by a talented and seasoned band of musicians who never fail to impress even the toughest music critics in the crowd.
