Product Description

“Listening to Memphis Slim sing and play the blues on BBC radio when I was sixteen was a revelation.  It led me down the levee to many other bluesmen and women.  The passionate expression that these artists bared inspired me greatly.  The songs on this CD are a tribute to those artists.  Since settling in Newfoundland I have been embraced by the people and the land on which we live.  There are songs on this CD that I have lived with for a long time, and some that are recent compositions.  ‘Snowman Blues’ is a work of contrasts, hot and cold, black and white, home and away.  I am fortunate to have met and played with some great spirits, and a few of them are present on this recording.  I sincerely hope you enjoy listening to these songs and that they can take you to a better place for a while.  The blues is a healing. ”
