Gig : Michael Pickett – The Weaver, Runcorn – 21 Oct

Posted on: Thursday, Oct 12, 2006

Barny writes to tell us about a gig in Runcorn next week.

Michael Pickett, a great singer, guitarist and harp player from Toronto, Canada will be playing at the Weaver Hotel on 21 Oct.

I did not know anything about Michael Pickett so I checked out his website to read the following…

It exists at the crossroads. Where the steamy, rural, Mississippi heat meets the stinging cold of urban Toronto; a place on the musical landscape that roots singer/songwriter Michael Pickett calls home.

Pickett’s unique fusion of sensibilities, driven by his thumping delta guitar rhythms, muscular harmonica and gravel and chains voice is, at once, traditional and relevant. Never content to merely be a musical archivist, Pickett effectively deconstructs and reconstructs those seminal blues, born on the delta, to serve his own singular purpose; writing songs that are authentic both in substance and performance.

If you want more information then please call Barny on 01928 574512.
