Fresh from the fryer of the UK’s Deep South, Southern Fried Groove Queens are a Mississippi Hill Country/Delta inspired duo, featuring Lee Hall on Guitar/Vocals & renowned Blues drummer Lucy Piper, daughter of the late Blues musician, Julian Piper ‘one of the UK’s foremost champions of African-American blues’ – The Guardian.

Cooked to perfection using a traditional recipe passed down through generations, they provide that heavy heart thumping kick and grooves that will make you want to move.

The duo play their take on the likes of old blues masters: RL Burnside, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and many more. Formed in 2021, they have already played at many of the UK’s leading Blues and Jazz festivals, taking audiences by storm. In 2023, the band played at Ørland Blues Festival in Norway, where Bluesnews described their performance as “a fantastic concert that left many jaws dropping.” Another recent review in June 2024 by Mid Wales RnB Club described the band; “Lucy and Lee play together brilliantly, with amazing and irrepressible energy, displaying an uncanny ability to follow one another’s moves. They manage to take some of the absolute all-time blues standards, and reinterpret them in their own up-tempo style, whilst never compromising the authenticity of the originals.”

With Lee’s unique haunting vocals, energetic slide playing, and Lucy’s infectious hypnotic drumming, they’re not to be missed. Be prepared to get down and ‘juke’ with them!
