The Damned and Dirty is one of the most exciting and innovative duos in the blues tradition. Gritty delta blues with screaming slide guitar, raw vocals and wailing blues harp. What started out as a side project of Kevin de Harde and Micha Sprenger grew bigger and bigger after their first release titledThe Damned and Dirty in 2012. Many live performances followed and in 2013 they released their second album Sell Your Soul. The biggest compliment came when they won the Dutch Blues Award for Best Album of 2012. Their second album received the same award for 2013!
The two write the songs themselves and are releasing their third album Rolling Into Town. They perform regularly in The Netherlands and are planning several international tours.
Vocalist and harmonicist Kevin de Harde has seen almost every Dutch blues club inside and out and has shared the stage with countless blues artists. He delivers expressive vocals, thought-provoking lyrics and a blues harp style to melt the most cynical heart.
Guitarist Micha Sprenger is a Music Teacher graduate from the High School of Performing Arts in Rotterdam. He works and lives in Zaandam. As well as being a guitarist and songwriter Micha also teaches music and guitar. His fingerpicking and bottleneck skills are widely appreciated.
