Under the title ‘Tomorrows Guitar Heroes‘ the Blues Caravan 2013 line-up has been finalised.
Bonn Blues fans will already know two of the youngsters performing: Brit Joanne Shaw Taylor toured with the Caravan a couple of years ago which makes her the Tours ‘Old Hand’ in name anyway. Canadian Jimmy Bowskill is already popular here after his shows at Museumsplatz and last year at the Harmonie (see also our previous interviews with Jimmy). New to European audiences will be Bart Walker. Living in Nashville, Walker won last years prestigious ‘Gibson Guitar Best Blues Guitarist’ Award in the ‘International Blues Challenge’. Further proof of his promise and ability is that his band includes Reese Wynans, formerly keyboard player with the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Good news too is that, in addition to Ian McKeown on bass from the Jimmy Bowskill Band, this years man on the drum stool will once again be the man nominated last year by 3Songsbonn as best drummer: Frenchman Denis Palatin.
Tourdates are in the pipeline.
