I’ve sat in with blues songwriter Pat Wictor at a few of his gigs, and I’ll be playing the Connecticut Agricultural Fair with him tomorrow. I’ll be joining him on the side stage along with Mara Levine, a vocalist whose harmonies have blown me away at a number of shows recently, and percussionist Cheryl Prashker.
Pat is an extraordinary songwriter who plays beautiful lap slide guitar, doing songs that are firmly rooted in the blues but entirely original. He’s also one of the only people (aside from John Cephas) who can cover Skip James, the deepest of the Mississippi blues singers, successfully. Pat is a great musician and a good guy and I’m very happy to be playing with him.
