We’ve been working this traditional gospel tune up as a High Hollers number but I think it works quite well as a solo harmonica piece too. I was inspired to record this after watching TJ and the Suitcase perform a rousing version last night at Al’s Dime Bar in Bradford.
Grant Dermody is absolutely one of my favourite living harmonica players and – by all accounts – fine gentleman.
I’ve watched this clip with Frank Fotusky on guitar more times than I care to remember and it never fails to impress. Grant’s skill with texture, rhythm, space and sensitive accompaniment is admirable.
