Jeremiah is Nr 1

Hats off to Jeremiah Johnson.  The talented man from Missouri has just shot to top spot on the coveted American Billboard Blues Chart with his latest release ‘Heaven’s To Betsy’.

It won’t be a surprise though to anyone who caught Jeremiah at the Harmonie on this year’ s supercharged Blues Caravan Tour.

Rope Schmitz founder member of Sunny Skies has died


“It´s a wonderful feeling when you perform together with other musicians, to look into the eyes of people in the audience, and to see that you are making them happy” – Rope Schmitz


So, I’m sitting on the balcony, and above me are indeed sunny blue skies.  Things are not as they were in the world of course – and, especially today, not here in Bonn.  Rope Schmitz, proud founder and inspiration of legendary pop and rock cover band sunny Skies died on Friday (27 March) leaving a legacy of great music, great concerts, and smiling faces.

Grafenwerth Concerts Re-scheduled

Albert Hammond during his concert last year in Cologne

Good news from concert promoter Ernst Ludwig Hartz.  All three of the concerts planned for June on Insel Grafenwerth will be re-scheduled following the Covid-19 cancellations of everything.

Former Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason‘s show covering early Floyd material does not have a definite new date at the time of writing, but will take place between 3 and 6 June 2021.

Ticket holders for the other concerts planned for June will be able to see their chosen shows this September.  Andreas Wollenweider will play his first concert in a decade on 5 September 2020 and Multi-hit machine Albert Hammond will now appear on 6 September 2020.

Daniel Manrique Smith Livestream coming on Saturday

Unfortunately the recently planned livestream concert with local Progressive Jazz matadors Jin Jim had to be cancelled because, as they point out, in the current situation it would be irresponsible to stream a concert with 6 people in a studio. Instead, Daniel Mannrique Smith will present his solo program this Saturday (28 March) at 8 p.m. The concert will be streamed on from the Blue in Green Recording Studio in Bonn.
