Big Daddy Wilson
"Blues is the root, everything else is the fruit." Big Daddy Wilson, the respected North Carolina bluesman, sees his music and career as a journey. True to the blues and its spiritual roots, but reaching further into soul and R&B.
His new record “Hard Time Blues” is a reflection of the time we live in now and all the worries that life brings…. Corona, poverty, injustice and other hardships. It also embraces the different styles of Big Daddy Wilson: blues, soul, R&B, country and gospel. The album was created with the help of producer Glenn Scott and Big Daddy's friend Eric Bibb.
Support: Crossroad Trail
Contemporary blues mixed with pop and rock. That is the sound of Crossroad Trail, the new band of former Mississippi Mud Pie members Nienke de Jong and Jan-Willem Kanis.
Climbing the podium was not possible for a long time due to corona. But the blues blood crawls where it can't go. So “when life gives you lemons…” write songs and get into the studio! Friends were called, former band members rediscovered and acquaintances hooked up. The six-piece Crossroad Trail band is born.
Blues with solid guitars is the basis. But don't go to Crossroad Trail for old-fashioned blues standards. Inspired by Beth Hart, JJ Cale, Samantha Fish and Eric Clapton, among others, they create contemporary blues with pop and rock influences. A bit of the old skool, a bit of the new skool. Their mainly self-written music is characterized by striking rhythms, surprising melodies and catchy riffs.
