The incomparable Rick Estrin and the Nightcats (featuring Kid Anderson of Greaseland Studios fame on guitar) are doing a brisk UK tour in January. Rick is one of the finest living blues harmonica players and his band are as good as it gets too.
I was really looking forward to the Selby gig (the only one within easy travelling distance) but I’ve done a very stupid thing and accidentally booked a High Hollers gig on the same night. Not happy.
If you’re less silly than me, check the tour dates and get to a show if you possibly can. The chance to see a blues band of this quality – especially featuring harmonica as a lead instrument – is rare indeed. Don’t miss your chance!
