Gig Announcement – Big Joe Bone (Foot Stomping Bluegrass/Delta Blues)

“..acoustic bluegrass and Delta blues, accompanied by harp, banjo and slide guitar and delivered with honesty and passion”
— Blues in Britain Magazine

Join us at The Art House for a foot-stomping evening with Big Joe Bone, described as ‘UK’s acoustic Seasick Steve’.

Playing Delta Blues, Bluegrass, Oldtime, Gospel and Hillbilly with raspy vocals, hard-driving harmonica rhythms, sublime bottleneck slide (on steel-bodied resonator guitars) and lightning finger-picking skills on 5 string banjos…..all held together by a very heavy stomping boot.

“Joe attacked his set with his usual foot stomping style at a speed that would impress most thrash metal bands. It would also be a crime not to mention Joe’s customised work boots in which he has attached a pickup creating an inbuilt stop box.”
— After Dark Magazine

As well as playing songs from great Roots musicians like Son House, Dock Boggs, Bukka White, Flatt and Scruggs, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Charlie Parr, Blind Willie Johnson, Skip James, Robert Johnson …..the list goes on and on!, Danny also plays his own songs, which fit right in to his eclectic set….. which shows that when it comes to roots music, he really “gets it”.
