Ellen McIlwaine is the one and only duchess of slide guitar. She has a big and fearless voice to boot and mixes R&B with Middle-Eastern, Indian, and West African styles to an impressive and fascinating style all her own.
With her well-travelled guitar she puts on a dynamic show, filled with high-energy Blues, Middle Eastern laments, a capella Gospel, and witty anecdotes from her forty-some years in music. Watch here.
