Press

"A tall, slim man with a shock of blonde hair and an on-again, off-again handlebar moustache, Lon Eldridge hardly looks the part of the itinerant Mississippi Delta bluesman roaming from plantation to plantation before the Second World War. And yet, if you were to close your eyes when he is playing, you might well find yourself thinking that one of those old men had somehow snuck into the room. Eldridge can't explain it... The result is a performance that stands apart from time and illuminates the human condition as only great art can."

-Dr. Richard Winham, PhD, from "The Blues Resonate with Lon Eldridge", 2010

"A young man, Lon Eldridge, walked to the front of the dining room. He looked younger than me, and was wearing a non-descript shirt, slip-on tennis shoes, and a handlebar mustache that he was at least two decades too young or two centuries too late to be wearing. Without bravado, he started his show..." "...the ghosts filled the room and took the empty seats around me. Though the group in the room was small and intimate, one could listen and know that we stood in the company of not only the saints and the apostles of religion and gospel, but also of the Delta blues. Saint James sat next to Robert Johnson, both nodding their heads to the music. Lon played the Blues as I haven't heard them since my last trip to Mississippi. He had a voice as pure as Sinatra, lyrics as sharp as a knife, and talent that pierced through time and space, creed and faith."

-Amanda Ringer, from "The Mountain, the Valley, and the Space Between", 2009
