Gig: Steve James – Fletcher Christian, Cockermouth – 22 Nov
Posted on: Saturday, Nov 10, 2007
Here’s some good news from Alan Hewitt of ahpromotions, Alan says…
November 22nd at 9.00pm
Steve James from Austin Texas will grace the stage.
I have had interest from musicians that want to see this man so that gives me the feeling we could be in for something good.
He is here for a few days and this one of only two gigs in the North.
This man has recorded with Willie Dixon, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Ruthie Foster and Maria Muldaur and has played alongside John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, John Hammond, Bo Diddley and Dave Van Ronk.
A recently nominated Grammy CD paying homage to Mississippi Fred McDowell and Charley Patton not only featured Steve but he wrote the sleeve notes too!
A tutor of the slide, guitar, mandolin and banjo as well as writer and as a radio programme host for WEVL in Memphis its a wonder he finds time for his favourite pastime, fishing.
Take a look at www.stevejames.com and be there in good time it promises to be a good night.
