Elton Goslett and Mike Hardaker are The Blues Unit – two accomplished and experienced musicians bring a different take to the blues by focusing on its many acoustic forms. “Blues, to us,” says Mike. “Is really a language rather than a genre. But it’s a language with many dialects. And there’s been a tendency in recent years, especially in South Africa, to focus on just a few of those.”
“Ours is a more inclusive approach,” says Elton. “We dig deep into the roots of the blues while recognizing its development over the decades. We play contemporary song alongside tunes from a hundred years ago”
