Floyd Beaumont and the Arkadelphians – 5:30 pm

  • Petite scène
  • from 5:30 pm to 7 pm

Floyd Beaumont & The Arkadelphians is a band formed in late 2009 in Geneva by four friends united by their love for the blues. They specialize in interpreting various styles of pre-war acoustic blues, drawing inspiration from the rich tradition of American music. Their repertoire reflects a diversity of influences, ranging from the harsh laments of the Mississippi Delta to white “Hillbilly Boogie,” sophisticated urban swing, gospel fervor, and the rural authenticity of string bands.

Their music, true to the roots of the blues, resonates both in the streets and on big stages, offering a sonic journey through the history of American music. The main influences of the band include legendary artists from the 1920s to the 1950s, such as Son House, Blind Willie McTell, Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Tampa Red, Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters, Kokomo Arnold, Blind Willie Johnson, the Mississippi Sheiks, as well as country icons like Hank Williams, Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and the Delmore Brothers.

Floyd Beaumont & The Arkadelphians stand out for their unique style and their ability to blend these varied influences to create true “American Roots Music.” Each performance is an authentic celebration of the blues and American musical roots, capturing the essence and diversity of these historical genres. As Floyd so aptly says, “Keep ’em coming!”

This performance is part of the Martigny Est Dans La Place festival (#MEDLP).
