Coun­try blues

Stirling Observer - - THETICKET -

There will be a rare solo out­ing by Grammy Award-win­ning Alvin Young­blood Hart at the Tol­booth Novem­ber 13.

He has been de­scribed as the cos­mic Amer­i­can love child of Howlin’Wolf and Link Wray, with praises sung by ev­ery­one from Bob Dy­lan to gui­tar gods Eric Clap­ton and Mick Tay­lor.

Born in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia, Hart was in­flu­enced by the Mis­sis­sippi coun­try blues per­formed by his rel­a­tives.

He is known as one of the world’s fore­most prac­ti­tion­ers of coun­try blues and has played some of the world’s most leg­endary venues.
