Hans Theessink is a Dutch bluesman based in Vienna. Renowned worldwide for his exceptional guitar playing, his sonorous voice and his warm stage presence, he has graced stages throughout Europe. He has also performed at many of the most prominent North American music festivals, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and the Chicago Blues Festival. He is greatly in demand and plays an average of 200 concerts a year.

In 2004, Hans received the Austrian Amadeus Award for “Songs From The Southland”, a tribute to the music of the American South. In the words of the highly respected US blues magazine, Blues Review: “Hans Theessink is an international blues treasure. He is one of the world’s pre-eminent country pickers and his warm baritone expresses blues”. What a way to start the autumn programme at The Harbouside.

Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.

Don’t forget that there is also a live interview and session available to download or listen online on the Raven and Blues website.

You can see the links on how to find this show by searching for Hans or by following the link below that takes you directly to the page….

This along with Pete’s strong recommendation should confirm to you that you have to be at Liverpool for the gig. Hans doesn’t come over here very often. Seize the chance.
