Red Beans & Rice
maine’s Down-homliest blues duo

Red Beans & Rice is a loose affiliation of two — a (mostly) acoustic duo playing an entertaining and engaging mix of blues, old and new.  Mr. Rice (Carter Ruff) plays slide guitar and has been known to howl at the moon.  "Red" Beans (Dave Hunt) is a gentler fellow with a touch on the guitar that is sweetly complex, and a voice as smooth as butter on a slow burn.

Mr. Ruff is also the luthier behind Subterranean Music Works in Bath, Maine, where he builds fine custom guitars. Both “Red” Beans and Rice play one-of-a-kind guitars built at Subterranean Music Works. Mr. Ruff also plays guitar, mandolin and clarinet in the Half Moon Jug Band.

Mr. Hunt is the proprietor of Vinylhaven Records and Finest Kind Electronics in Brunswick, Maine where you can peruse and purchase fine vintage audio gear and records — both vinyl and shellac. Mr. Hunt can also bee seen performing with the Blues Buzzards.
