Authentic acoustic blues and rag from the relaxed combo of Murray Kilpatrick and Gordon Chamley, featuring accomplished finger-style guitar and wailing blues harmonica.

Blakewater Blues play covers of legendary bluesmen such as Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Mississippi John Hurt, alongside Gordon’s original compositions in similar traditional vein.

Whether you like your blues slow and soulful, light and bouncy, or with a little bit of tongue in cheek, you'll find it here.

Murray is a versatile, well known musician on the local and national music scene from traditional and contemporary folk to blues and jazz, he also plays with The Jimmies, and runs the popular Pukerua Bay Folk Club.

Gordon is a talented emerging blues singer/songwriter and an artist on the blues harp.

Special (frequent) guest with Blakewater Blues is the delightful blues/jazz vocalist Sue Rose who sings regularly with Murray in their own band, Sage, and also with Parryphonalia, and formerly with 10DD.
