A hot tip for concert goers this year is the Dr Feelgood/Jimmy Bowskill show at the Harmonie on 5 February. As a taster, here is an interview I did with Jimmy Bowskill after his show at the Museumsplatz in 2010 supporting Joe Bonamassa and Jeff Beck.
Victoria Smith is from Leicestershire and she plays bass guitar. 3SongsBonn thought that wasn’t much information about the new girl on the upcoming Blues Caravan ‘More Girls With Guitars’ Tour though, so we asked her about herself.
On 31 January at the Harmonie you can hear great music and also contribute to a good cause. The ‘Girls with Guitars’ are back with RUF’s Blues Caravan and Dani Wilde, is back after a new visit to Africa. Here she writes about her fundraising project for children in the slums of Kenya, her work towards giving them a better education, and how every cent can bring a smile to a young face.
3SongsBonn caught up with Will Wilde in Cologne’s Yardclub recently to find out what it felt like to be headlining a tour of Europe for the first time, and whether I should treat my harmonica to a Coca-Cola…
With three young starlets currently playing on the ‘Girls with Guitars’Tour, the question might be asked “Does Thomas Ruf really need another female Blues musician on his impressive roster at Ruf Records?” If you’ve been lucky enough to catch Dana Fuchs on one of her European Tours, or on the road in the States, Then you will know the answer is an emphatic ‘yes!’ The girl fromNew York has been playing to ecstatic audiences throughout Europe in promotion of the new ‘Love to Beg’ CD. I managed to track her down between concerts, acting, and photo shoots to find out more about Dana Fuchs, her Blues roots and the ‘Church of Rock n Roll’ as she describes her energy laden shows.
The Fiddlers Irish Pub in Bonn has long been a favourite place for english speakers both visiting and resident to relax. It’s not just a cool pint of Murphy’s Irish Stout or a plate of Fish & Chips that brings people to Endenich though. It’s also the many events that take place all year round. From Karaoke to Pub Quizzes. Football to Poker. TV Sport to Comedy. The Irish also love a good sing song, so naturally music is also high on the agenda. 3SongsBonn asked Fiddlers owner Raymond Searson about the pub and his own thoughts on music and it’s part in his locations success.
