Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Spent New Years's Day at the Station, Loftus, Saltburn-on-Sea for the acoustic "Hiring Fair" set up by Tony Leonard. Between performances someone said "beats the **** out of Jools Holland's show last night" - including the scintillating mandolin playing of Sir Paul and the stunning vocals from Kyle.......... Ahemmm...pardon me while I burp..

The Station had some great talent on show for free (better than that - included great free food from the Landlord n' lady) - inc Dargan & Gill; Ian Swinburne; Ruth & Gary Wells: Maggie Camp; Alchemist Brothers (aka Fairly Liquid); Mar'tin Nesbitt and Roger Sutcliffe etc

Now I quite enjoyed 'Seasick Steve' but have to agree with '12 string George'. For real talent with the slide guitar we were treated on Tuesday to Roger Sutcliffe + resonator. Folks really should get out more.
