Sunday Sessions: Roll out the Barrelhouse Woman and the Blue Coat Man..
A full afternoon of leg-kicking (literally), chair-standing (literally) PA-quaking (literally) rock 'n' roll 'n' soul - was had last Sunday as West Weston tore up the assembled Sunday Session jivers and dancers for another Sabbath shindig. The rhythm section of Orlando Shearer and Mike Thorne slinked with a Stray Cat strut, and Paul Garner's blues runs, riffs and sweat-fingered solos seemed to be pulled from his very boots.
Wrapping up from 7:30 - Mo' Fingers whipped and whistled along, blazing through a setlist of heavy-handed Hammond melters
This week, the Grand Master of jazz and blues guitar - Martin McNeill is back with his Bottletop Blues Band and Steve West Weston sitting in on harmonica. Come along and park yourself at The Railway Hotel from 4:30 for a full afternoon (and evening if you've got the stamina) of musical doings...
I'll be sharing DJ duties with the boy Marmite. A sneak preview of a couple likely rockers likely to be popped into my playlist are...
Champion Jack Dupree - Barrelhouse Woman
Eddie Boyd - Blue Coat Man
And it just wouldn't be Sunday without at least one Lowell Fulson tune..
