The Nimmo Brothers (Live in Goes 10-4-2009)

De Schotse broers Alan en Steve Nimmo zijn veelgevraagd in het Europese bluescircuit. En dat is niet ten onrechte want de broers behoren tot de beste live acts die te vinden zijn in Groot-Brittannië en het vaste land van Europa. The Nimmo Brothers bestaan al zo’n 14 jaar en hebben inmiddels 5 studio albums en één live album uitgebracht.

Ill be back someday

Vrijdagavond hadden de organisatoren deze mannen weten te strikken voor de bluesavond die eens in de drie maanden plaatsvind . Het was zoal gewoonlijk weer een prima keuze. Het was een muzikale topavond. Arthur en al die andere bluesliefhebbers hadden het dan ook prima naar zijn zin.

Long way from everything

Vanaf de eerste tot de laatste noot bewezen The Nimmo Brothers vrijdagavond inderdaad tot de betere Europese bluesrockformaties te behoren. De broers zijn geweldige gitaristen die uitstekend op elkaar ingespeeld zijn. Afwisselend spelen Alan en Steve solo en ritmegitaar met een geweldige energie en ook met een flinke dosis humor.

So many roads

Gitarist Stevie Nimmo heeft zijn inspiratie vooral uit de Chicago school en Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, broer Alan Nimmo heeft veel naar de vroegere Paul Kossof (The Free) geluisterd. Tijdens hun optredens wordt gepoogd een brug te slaan tussen de Amerikaanse rootsmuziek en de Britse blues. Zonder blozen wordt er geslalomd tussen Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B.King en Peter Green. Ook vocaal kunnen deze broers heel wat bluesvarianten aan. Met hun typisch “Glasgow’s No Fear No Messing” en nooit aflatende energie, zit hun optredens boordevol passie en emotie,recht uit het hart van Glasgow tot in de ziel van het publiek.(bron Bluesrockpagina.nl)

Flatbroke

The Nimmo Brothers wonnen de British Blues Connection Awards voor beste U.K.album en beste band, stonden op de gerenommeerde bluesfestivals en in volle clubs. In 2008 kwam hun zesde album uit 'Pickin’Up The Pieces'. De sound op deze schijf is zwaarder en nog meer gitaar-georiënteerd dan die van de vorige albums.

"Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just As Bad)"

"Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just As Bad)", also known as "Call It Stormy Monday", or just "Stormy Monday", is a blues song written by T-Bone Walker and first recorded in 1947. Confusingly, it is also sometimes referred to as "Stormy Monday Blues", although that is actually the title of a different song, a #1 R&B hit recorded in 1942 by Earl Hines and Billy Eckstine; Walker titled his song as he did to avoid the name collision.

The original recording appeared on Black & White Records, produced by Ralph Bass, and was one of Walker's breakthrough sides in pioneering the idiom of electric blues guitar. This recording also featured smoky trumpet work from sideman Teddy Buckner. It reached #5 on the R&B charts in 1948. B.B. King has said that "Call It Stormy Monday" inspired him to begin playing electric guitar.

Walker re-recorded the song with better fidelity and a somewhat different arrangement on his classic 1959 Atlantic Records album T-Bone Blues.

Washington,DC.

The song became a standard for blues and blues rock artists, and over the years was recorded by Albert King, Eva Cassidy, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Jethro Tull, and others. Trouble ensued when artists named it "Stormy Monday Blues", however, as for instance Bobby Bland did on a well-known rendition, as it was mis-credited and royalties went to the Hines-Eckstine song rather than Walker's. This may have also happened on some of the treatments that were just called "Stormy Monday".

The song was most popularized by The Allman Brothers Band, who included a sterling live performance (as "Stormy Monday") on their classic album At Fillmore East in 1971. Initially introduced as "an old Bobby Bland song," in reference to his aforementioned take, a correction is made and T-Bone Walker is given proper recognition. It garnered considerable airplay on progressive rock and album-oriented rock radio formats during the 1970s.

The 1988 Mike Figgis film Stormy Monday was named for the song, and includes B. B. King's performance of it over the opening credits.




Aaron Thibeaux Walker or T-Bone Walker or Oak Cliff T-Bone (May 26, 1910March 15, 1975 was an American blues guitarist, singer, pianist and songwriter who was one of the most important pioneers of the electric guitar. His electric guitar solos were among the first heard on modern blues recordings and helped set a standard that is still followed. He was ranked #47 in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

Mairtin O Connor Cathal Hayden Seamie O Dowd (De Mythe 4-4-2009)

Zo zat Arthur volkomen onverwacht afgelopen zaterdag bij een voorstelling van Celtic Nights in Theater de Mythe in Goes.(Vrijkaartje,kon hij natuurlijk niet laten schieten)
Een zaal vol met hoofdzakelijk 60 plussers en allemaal liefhebbers van de traditionele Ierse folk muziek. 4 acts met veel virtuoos viool en gitaarwerk met een geweldige uitschieter:
Het Martin O Connor Trio,Mairtin was one of the main musical forces behind the now legendary "Riverdance" phenomenon, having previously, through his work with De Dannan, Midnight Well, Skylark and as a solo artist, quite simply gone where no Irish accordion player had gone before .He is one of the most respected and best loved musicians ever to emerge from the country.
..
Catwalk
Cathal Hayden is a multiple All-Ireland Championship winner, he achieved worldwide recognition as one of the founder members of "Four Men and a Dog". He is one of Ireland's top fiddlers and his solo banjo performances are quite simply, show stopping.
..
Cedars of Lebanon
Seamie O'Dowd's musical abilities have become increasingly familiar at international level in recent years. Rooted deeply in the traditional music of Sligo, he has played in many genres of acoustic and electric music. He toured the world for a number of years with Sligo trad.legends, "Dervish" and recently has played at home and abroad with Liam O'Flynn, Matt Molloy and Meteor Award nominee Mary Mc Partlan.
