A dynamite blend of original blues & swing featuring guest appearances by some of Canada's finest blues legends: Dutch Mason, Donnie "Mr.Downchild" Walsh, Jack de Keyzer, Tony D & more!
Second cd for Big Daddy G features great guitar, swinging B3 organ plus one of the top harmonica players around.
There are several different guest vocalists on this CD. With one of the guest vocalists being a bona-fide Canadian blues legend in the name of Richard “Hock” Walsh, original vocalist from Downchild Blues Band, they are already off to a rousing start. His 3 appearances on the CD are easily recognizable and it is clear that he is still in top form after all these years.
With other guest artists such as Johnny V (if you’ve seen Eddy `The Chief’ Clearwater perform in the past year or so then you’ve seen Johnny V as well) playing some tasty slide guitar on “Crosseyed Cat” how can you go wrong.
No matter where Big Daddy Wilson travels on this big, beautiful, mixed-up planet of ours, he takes the South with him. For more than two decades, he has been carrying his message of hope and unity to each and every show, whether in New York, Paris, Auckland or – in the case of his new live album Songs From The Road – the village of Rubigen in central Switzerland.
Take a floor-filling London soul man. Add a golden-voiced Southern States storyteller. Throw in a fast-rising Philadelphia based singer/saxophonist. Then hold on to your hats. The legendary Blues Caravan came to a lot of towns in 2017 – with a three-artist bill that promises fireworks. Give it up for Vanessa Collier, Big Daddy Wilson and Si Cranstoun!
