The boys in blues
The Jazz N Blues Lounge at Ballina Hotel will put the emphasis on the blues when Slim Pickens and Dr Baz perform there this Saturday, May 3, from 6.30pm. Slim and the doctor joined forces a few years ago and have since taken their delta/blues/country/roots music to the world Europe in 2004 and 2005 and all around Australia since then.
Slims finger-picking guitar style combines neatly with the accordion, guitar and piano playing of Dr Baz. And they both have voices honed by livin a life with the blues.
Slim Pickens and Dr Baz will play songs from the early delta bluesmen of the 20s and 30s through to the modern day (like Ben Harper and Keb Mo) as well as some rootsy stuff from Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams.
