Band on the Wall presents...
Blues Roots Course Summer 2017
A new short course of six sessions exploring Blues forms, styles and techniques for all instruments and vocalists with tuition from blues aces Mat Walklate and Paolo Fuschi.
This course is open to intermediate - advanced players (guitar, bass, drums, harmonica, keyboard, melody instruments and singers). To get the most from this course, participants should be confident players with at least two years of playing experience, but previous blues experience is not necessary.
This course will cover a variety of classic styles from Chicago to Texas and the West Coast including Country Blues and Rhythm and Blues. It explores repertoire from blues legends such as Jimmy Reed, BB King, Albert King and many more.
Mat Walklate (Harmonica, guitar and vocals) and Paolo Fuschi (guitar and vocals) share a passion for blues music and have performed and recorded together since 2014 receiving rave reviews along the way.
“This is one of the best blues albums that I have heard in a long time. The musicianship is first class and Walklate is one of the U.K.’s hidden talents as his harp playing is excellent. Fuschi cuts the frills and plays well either when backing his partner or in delivering short but impressive solos.” – Blues and Rhythm UK
