Blues Stay Away From Me


blues stay away from me the pressley girls

The Delmore Brothers were a great influence on Pap’s harmony style of singing. Pap was a fan of the Delmores from an early age and he passed along his love for them to his children.

The Delmore Brothers had so many great songs! There’s the ones like Browns Ferry Blues that make you smile and the ones like Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar that’ll almost make you cry. Then there’s all the ones that make you tap your toes and hum along.

Take a listen to The Pressley Girls singing Blues Stay Away from Me – a Delmore Brothers classic.

The Pressley Girls think the Delmore Brothers are pretty cool. I guess you could say Pap’s love for the Delmores has reached the next generation of harmony singers.

    I called Donna Lynn at our Christian Radio Station today and requested “Precious Memories” by Chitter and Chatter. But she played it by Paul, Pap, and Chatter, it was OK. I love the way they all do it too, but it’s #74 on You Tube Pressley Girl’s Videos. They got 111 of ’em so far. Bet it took a long time to do all that! …Ken

    Great Job, it’s hard to beat that “Genetic Harmony’.

    Hope your girls never have a real occasion to wish the blues away. If they do, maybe they can sing them gone. Some of us are more prone than others to be troubled by them. Guess that is where the songs came from.

    I never thought of the Delmore Brothers as cool but The Pressley Girls certainly are!

    Mighty fine. Some real nice rockin chair work too. Didn’t know mandolin was one of their instruments. Only recall seeing the fiddle and guitar. “Just exploring” strikes a chord with me; although I may refer to it as ramblin or wanderin. Don’t think I’ve ever been lost, but my preacher may differ with that.
