Sunday Blues Afternoon

George Square Spiegeltent
George Square, Edinburgh
Sunday 14 July, 2.00pm

Melvin Taylor Blues Band, Stacey Mitchhart Band, Marcus Bonfanti: One of the most exhilarating guitarists in blues history, Melvin Taylor was born in Mississippi and grew up in Chicago. He fuses the Chicago blues feel and the touch of the great jazz stylists, with the dizzying speed and wild abandon of blues-rock. “Taylor’s arsenal consists of blinding speed, a feverish wah-wah pedal, a range of tones that leaps from groans to squeals, and notes bent so dramatically that his guitar sounds like it’s retching. Taylor succeeds because he’s a virtuoso who pushes the limits of his own skills.” (Living Blues Magazine).  Mitchhart was a huge hit at EJBF last year.  Classic soulful blues with some original songwriting, playful delivery, and roadhouse virtuosity in a joyful set of Memphis blues. Acoustic folk-blues, gutsy country blues and stomping electric blues – what will the young guitar hero, Bonfanti do in a short solo set?
