Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) Modern Blues Players, your thoughts. (78* d) RE: Modern Blues Players, your thoughts. 03 Mar 01


John Cephas and Phil Wiggins, absolutely floored me when I saw them. I really don't know the genre well, but I have some friends here in Pittsburgh that recommend stuff and I almost invariably like what I hear.

Pat Donahue, The self-proclaimed "Two Hand Band" is entirely too modest. He's makes that guitar sound like an orchestra.

Paul Rishell and Annie Raines, I've seen them twice as a duet as well as with John Sebastian's "J-Band" Paul does some nice work with a Strat, but he really shines on a National Steel guitar. Annie makes her harmonica talk. As a pair they're incredible!


And one I'll probably get an argument about: Carole King, She's classified as a singer-songwriter and certainly that title applies, but I've caught myself listening to a couple songs off of "Tapestry" and thing they could easily fit into either an electric or country blues format. Particularly "Way Over Yonder". And she sings with more soul than one normally would expect from a "Pop Artist of the Year"


Just my $.02

Rich
