Gig: Tom Doughty – New Brighton – 09 Nov 2008
Posted on: Monday, Nov 3, 2008
Liverpool blues duo Blue C host their fifth Blues On The Rock blues afternoon at Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton, Wirral, this Sunday, November 9th, when their special guest is the wonderful lap-style slide guitar player Tom Doughty. Tom is greatly in demand in the USA and all over the UK, so this is a rare chance to see him in the intimate setting of the fort’s basement room.
More seating is promised after last month’s packed club for Joey and The Wheels, but the message is get there early to ensure a seat! Music from 1pm-4pm, £3 admission. Cafe/bottle bar, blues memorabilia on display, chance to win blues CDs, even LPs for sale. Don’t be late! Enquiries, 0151 709 5484 or visit www.myspace.com/bluecblues
Tom will be promoting his brand new record ‘Have a Taste of This’.
This is Tom’s third CD and follows the critical acclaim of his previous works, ‘The Bell’ and ‘Running Free’
Tracks from Tom’s new CD have just been featured on Radio Lancashire, Bluenotes and Radio Merseyside and like both his previous albums, Tom hopes to see ‘Have a Taste of This’ featured on the BBC Radio 2 Paul Jones Blues programme in the imminent future.
An organic development of his previous work, ‘Have a Taste of this’ sees Tom develop his composing and writing skills further, with 9 of the 13 Tracks being Originals; including the already acclaimed song, ‘Zimbabwe’.
Strongly rooted in the Acoustic sound of the 20s and 30s lap slide playing, Tom’s music brings a fresh approach and is bang up to date and full of instantly recognisable music that lets the listener know that this is Tom Doughty. He sounds like no other player of the genre.
Tom’s CDs are available from his web site: www.tomdoughty.com ; www.cdbaby.com and will soon see a Distribution deal in place to make all 3 CDs available in the shops and through internet sellers like Amazon and Play.com
