Seasick Steve

Although his styling may be rather one dimensional, this guy can really lay it down.
I first became aware of him when I was putting together the Green Man Festival video in the post before this one.

Master of bayou-boogie-hobo-blues, he uses whatever he can find to deliver his message. His instruments range from an electric guitar with only three strings and the pickup duct taped, to a couple of tin cans, a van door handle, Christmas decorations and one string mounted on a 2x4. Not much to work with, but he can sure make them sing.

Headed for the Royal Albert Hall October 1st, he brings audiences stories of life on the down-side with a pounding beat from his Mississippi Drum Machine – a wooden box with a Mississippi license plate on the front.

This evening I’ll start you off with a short interview followed by a collection of his performances. Closing things out is an 18 minute movie and an encore to wrap it up.

Tonight I invite you to an evening with SEASICK STEVE!
