A strong steady thumb on an old Gibson guitar is the driving force behind Danielle Miraglia’s delta blues influenced guitar style.
Add a raw, powerful, whiskey tinged voice and one might be tempted to label her a blues artist. But while Miraglia’s style pays homage to these blues traditions, her classic rock verve, catchy melodies and eclectic array of song subjects that range from deeply personal to socially relevant give it an original twist that is all her own.
Her tunes range from heart-felt to socially conscious and will move both your heart and hips. Acoustic Root says, “Danielle Miraglia’s guitar work keeps Delta traditions alive. Her steady thumb and playing style trace a direct line to the blues of the field and chicken shacks. Vocally, Danielle’s voice digs in, twisting within the delivery, seeming to break but more likely soaring before the fall.”
Danielle was the 2009 Mountain Stage Northeast Regional 1st Place Winner, and has shared the stage with Robert Cray, John Hammond and Chris Smither. Her recordings include “Box of Troubles”, “Live at Toad”, and “Home” Live @ Club Passim. Joining Danielle for this performance as a trio will be her husband Tom Bianchi on bass and Lawrence Scudder on Viola.
