Garron Frith Music That’s Worth a Pretty Penny… Shop Sessions #8
After the opening foray from KwalaParla it was time to introduce Chris Grimes..
Seeing Chris play up close in the shop was a real treat, his intricate fingerpicking blues always fills me with awe.. straight away my foot was tapping. You can feel the Rhythm’s that would have had dance halls all over the US jumping in the 20s & 30s and still grips me today. The thumb keeping time with the alternating bass and the fingers creating the fine needle work of the songs it’s mesmerizing especially to fellow guitar players. As much as I enjoy the finger picking blues on a normal 6 string I just melt when I listen to someone playing blues on a resonator and that’s exactly what happened as Chris started playing Six White Horses. Chris started the evening off in style and treated the audience to a style of music which some had never seen performed live which created a real buzz..
Garron will be recording his next album soon which means we will all be treated to more totally ace music in 2015 we can’t wait….
So I’m four days on’t tour, Saturday night Dewsbury a great crowd many faces I had not seen for a while, played a few new songs a few old. Then Sunday in the VW down to Basingstoke great gig at the Anvil, 10CC were on form and the crowd were appreciative of my opening slot, Tuesday over to Cheltenham Town Hall another cracker. Wednesday day off so went for bike ride with TM Keith Myerscough, Wednesday now at Tunbridge Wells all ready to sound check, tomorrow night see’s me at Sandbach Cycle Junction solo gig, then over to Skegness & Guildford for the final part of my 10CC support.
