This duo plays a catchy and acoustic mix of music styles from America.

Their repertoire varies from Blues ( 'Windy City' Chicago ) to Cajun & TexMex ( Louisiana / Texas ).
During their musical journey Cleanhead & Barefoot also break through time-zones.

Their re-arranged blues songs of Robert Johnson ( 1930ís ) are varied with Zydeco repertoire of Clifton Chenier ( 1960ís ).

Their live-album Travellin' was released on Real Roots Records.

Both musicians have been members of the Blues Disease, Magic Frankie's backing band.
With this band they recorded the critically acclaimed cd 'Are You Listenin'' and played numerous blues and jazz festivals throughout Europe. They shared the stage with a.o. Duke Robbilard, Doug MacLoud, Alvin Lee and John Lee Hooker.
