ABC Acoustic Blues Club – Blind Boy Fuller Tribute – Jenny Lind. Mon 14th Nov 2022.

Mick Knight… Fulton Allen born 1904 or 7 or 9 … in Wadesboro North Carolina. He was an eclectic, popular and influential recording artist. Though he made over 120… 78rpm sides he never performed on stage preferring the street and informal gatherings. Come and join us as we recreate some of the sound of the East Coast blues of Blind Boy Fuller…..with Sister Suzie, Piers Clark, Jem Turpin, Nick Smalley and Mick Knight.

Here’s Roger Hubbard at the ABC club Hastings UK on October 10th 2022 playing a 1928 Martin 0-18 guitar. Filmed by Jon Renouf.

Graham Belchamber… it was a marvellous evening of Robert Johnson music.

Here’s another video from the ABC Acoustic Blues Club…

ABC Acoustic Blues Club – Mississippi John Hurt tribute – The Jenny Lind 12th Sept 2022

John Smith Hurt was born in Teoc Mississippi in 1892. He was a farmhand and labourer until the last few years of his life. His music was performed for family, friends and at country dances. In 1928 he recorded some blues 78’s that 35 years later led to him becoming a star of the blues revival. Come and join us as we pay this small tribute, play some of the songs and tell some of the story of Mississippi John Hurt…. with Piers Clark and Mick Knight plus Eddy Odel and possibly more!

Ken Copsey… Looking forward to this!
