Black Cat Bone at Worcester Music Festival
Black Cat Bone: A spicey ole stew: a few slices of Mississipi blues, a rich stock of Chicago rhythm, pinch of New Orleans spice simmering in good Severn waters. A favourite old recipe for a night out with some 21st century tastes catered for. Come get some down you
Genre: Rhythm & Blues
Black Cat Bone are a harmonica based local blues band. They began performing around the three counties as a duo some six years ago and in the last couple have grown to a fourpiece which have added a fine overdrive to the sound.
Influences range from 1930s performer Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, Hoagie Carmichael even, through to John Lee Hooker, Kings BB and Freddie, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Eric Bibb, some homegrown material and a fair smattering of Dylan songs covered in driving 'Judas' fashion.
Amongst recordings is the new EP Babylon Mind.
