After the collective effort of several folks, including me, the two harmonica powerhouses finally had dinner recently and got up to play in front of a sold out show at Highway 99, last month Saturday night, October 29th, 2011. I wanted to be there when these two forces of nature collided and I was. You can read more about it and see my photo slideshow on examiner.com by clicking the link below.
After the show I had the chance to sit down with these two virtuosos and chat with them about what it was like to play together and their approach playing the mouth harp.
Sunday, November 6th was the 11th annual Woodstick Big Beat in Kirkland. In attendance was author Jules Follett. Jules and I spoke about the making of her book, “Sticks n’ Skins” a wonderful coffee table book featuring photos and bios from some of the best drummers throughout the world.
In the third segment of the show lead vocalist Tee and guitarist EJ from Afraid of Figs stopped by to chat about their music and The Humane Society, Rock Out for Animals which took place on Saturday, October 12th at High Dive in Seattle. They have another charity gig coming up on December 10th at Vera Project.
