Blue C had one of their busiest years in 2009 when they ran and hosted two successful acoustic blues clubs, Blues On The Rock at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton and the Acoustic Blues Lounge at the View Two Gallery in Liverpool.
But in 2010 they took the decision to temporarily halt those endeavours and concentrate on their own music.
The duo – Raphael Callaghan, vocals, slide guitar, harmonica, and Christine Purnell, bass guitar, vocals – have been busy playing their favourite gigs, like Nantwich Jazz Blues And Music Festival, and writing the final songs to appear on their long-awaited follow-up CD to their acclaimed album Swimming Against The Tide. Eric Clapton, B B King and Bonnie Raitt have copies of that one!
They look forward to the acoustic blues special at the View Two Gallery on September 24th where they will present a sneak preview of some of their new material.
Andersson has spent the last years singing soulful tunes that brings you back to the days of Percy Sledge and James Brown. Tajic and Härdevik has worked together for lots of years. The last few years they were touring Scandinavia and Europe performing with a mix of country, Americana and Swedish flavoured pop.
Joining the Orchestra to the gig in Liverpool are friends Pontus Andersson – Lead guitar and Magnus Nilsson – Drums. When Pontus Andersson and Magnus Nilsson are playing with the Orchestra in Sweden, they play under the name Hardy T Anderson band.
The setlist for Liverpool will host a mix of blues and flavoured soulful Orchestra music.
