Bluesman plays gig under Chelsea stadium
Sonny Landreth will play his only UK show at the beautiful Under The Bridge venue, which is located under the Chelsea Football Club pitch in West London on Monday 26thOctober.
His will be playing songs from his new album ‘Bound By The Blues’ which was out on June 8 on Provogue/Mascot Label Group. The recordings mark a return to the slide guitarist’s musical roots, presenting a bold, big-sounding collection of tracks that swagger like the best of classic rock, climb to stratospheric heights of jazz informed improvisation, and inevitably remain deeply attached to the elemental emotional and compositional structures that are at the historic core of the blues.
Landreth offers, “Ever since The Road We’re On [his Grammy-nominated 2003 release], fans have been asking me, ‘When are you going to do another blues album?’ After expanding my songs for Elemental Journey into an orchestral form, I thought I’d get back to the simple but powerful blues form. I’d been playing a lot of these songs on the road with my band, and we’ve been taking them into some surprising places musically. So going into the studio to record them with just our trio seemed like the next step.”
