This was no ordinary club tour. This was the Blues Caravan 2018. On this year?s Blues Caravan, you?ll not only find one young gun with a dazzling career ahead of her, but also two heavyweights with a sky-high reputation. Let?s welcome them to the stage?
This CD / DVD release revives a unique Blues Caravan! A unique live piece to experience the Blues Caravan of 2018 again and again!
The accompanying DVD was recorded on 27.01.2018 at Café Hahn in Koblenz!
Ruf?s tireless dedication to the blues means it hunts far beyond the US and UK for its new signings ? and the label has struck gold with Croatian gunslinger Vanja Sky. On this CD / DVD she presents songs from her first studio album "Bad Penny".
Some surnames command instant respect on the blues scene. As the son of the mighty Luther Allison ? the late Chicago blues titan who was Ruf?s first signing back in 1994 ? Bernard Allison has added to the family legend and carved out his own mythology as a world-class songwriter and performer. For this year?s Blues Caravan, he?ll be drawing on an acclaimed back catalogue that includes 1997?s US debut Keepin? The Blues Alive and 2000?s classic Born With The Blues, and slipping between genres as only a master can.
If you?re remotely serious about modern blues, you?ll have followed the twists and turns of Mike Zito?s fascinating career ?I have long wanted to join the Blues Caravan and run away, so I?m excited,? he says. ?My shows are energetic and passionate: I try hard to give everything I?ve got and make every note count. You can expect rocking blues guitar, with a dose of soul vocals, and a mix of my best songs.?
