MA BESSIE & HER PIGFOOT BANDThe Dublin Castle, NW1 7AN , [Venue Details]
Ma Bessie and the Pigfoot Band – Empress of the Blues, Bessie Smith, paid glorious tribute by Julia Titus and her ‘Pig Foot’ band; presenting an evening of classic blues, jazz tunes, and covers from the last 50 years of popular music.
Embodying the soul, charisma, and stand out vocals of Bessie herself, Julia’s trio are a remarkable thing. They don’t just look the part but sound it too. ‘Gimme A Pig Foot (And A Bottle of Beer)’….not half.
Blue Kimono – showcasing the other side of the Blues, the music that emerged once white guys on the Thames Delta had got hold of the urban blues of Bessie’s children…Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Elmore James et al. Clapton, Mayall, The Stones and others put Missisipi thru a blue eyed filter and rock music as we know it was born.
Played with fizz and style tonight by this nouveau blues ensemble of seasoned and crafty players.
