New Blues Jam.

Recommended Posts

The Smiddy Jam is on Sunday, at 3pm.

Don't tell me you'd rather be Christmas Shopping...........

Always entertaining, sometimes exhilarating, usually educational- one way or another.  ;)

Friendly, cosy, beer sodden......what more could you want?

It was great to have you out there Frosty! We'll get some more drumming out of you next time! I'll blend in to the back and play a few chords for once!!!

It was a really good jam last month, some really fancy playing on some classic songs! You just now there will be some real rocking when Mr. Wah-Wah hits the stage! Always great to see.

Everyone should come along and sit in for a bit, we could have the next super group somewhere in the mix! ha ha!

See you in January!

Went along to the Smiddy last week, brilliant jam. Dead friendly, really nice atmosphere and that drummer from out of the Malpasos. Can't ask for more.

Thanks, Frosty.  :)

Come back often.  And on that subject.......

Next edition of the No-Longer-New Smiddy Jam is on Sunday, January 28th- starting at 3pm.

Come early- and check out the Pictish Stone Circle, on the edge of the village.  Puts your post-Christmas credit card statement into a wider perspective..........

Stone circle? I must check that out. I didn't even know one existed over there. Might find my initials carved in one of the stones, who knows?

Great variety of material, yesterday- and a welcome influx of new (and new-old) faces.  Thanks to everyone who attended- and especially, to all the performers.  :):cool:

Next one coincides with the return of Daylight Saving Time- March 25th.  It'll have to be good, to compare with this one.

Banish the frozen, pre-Spring blues......come and listen to/play something from swampy Mississippi, arid Texas or balmy California.  Of course, if your tastes run more to Hooker, Muddy or Wolf, frigid Detroit or Chicago grooves will be gratefully accepted.

 

After another day of woolly bonnets and two pairs of socks.....I'd rather be in a bar in New Orleans, listening to Tab Benoit's band- but that's just me.  :cool:

 

March 25th at 3pm.  It'll be warm, by then.  Maybe.

The long summer days beckon.  Not this weekend, obviously......:(

Sunday, at 3pm.  I'm thinking Blind Willie Johnson, Magic Sam, Johnny 'Guitar' Watson, ....... 

Sing us a song, have a few pints.  Your garden's too cold to do anything in, except load music gear into the car.

A busy and tuneful afternoon.  A couple of our acoustic regulars were unable to make it- but this was offset by a healthier than usual contingent from the Granite City and points south.  Thanks for making the extra effort, Ladies and Gents.

We've had some of the North-East's finest bass players in attendance, recently....from the young to the ....errr... road worn.  From Towering to Tiny, six strings, down to a humble four.   (I will organise a Bass-Off, one of these days.)  They're so good, they could share out the lead breaks and riffs, between them.

Those who left early missed one of the day's highlights, namely the DRUM SOLO!  Superb stuff, from that incognito AbMus stalwart.  :cool:

Keep supporting the Jam and we'll keep putting it on.  Next one is on May 27th, starting at 3pm.

I see Paul Jones has finally passed the baton of his Radio 2 Blues show to someone (much) younger....namely Cerys Matthews, best known for her Radio 6 Music sunday morning work- and previously, her singing, with Catatonia.

Monday nights, starting at 8pm.  A radical shift....probably a couple of decades later than it might have been.;)

The Smiddy Jam will be next Sunday afternoon.  Frosty will be bringing his drum kit.  Trikelops will sing something by Howling Wolf and /or Sonny Boy Williamson 2.  Guaranteed.  The safest bet you'll find, this side of England exiting the World Cup, after the group stage......

July 29th at 3pm  The Smiddy Jam is impending!  

P.M. me, for directions, or any other details.  I still haven't got round to finishing the rule book, dress code guidelines, etiquette short-cuts.........;)
