A new set of sessions from Bob Myer tomorrow with Bob’s Folk Show – The Live Sessions featuring Jamie and Stevie Freeman plus Danny from Danny and the Champions of the World. Also for those that fancy a day of great music join us this Sunday at the London Folk & Roots festival, but before that here’s a bit more from Bob on the new sessions:
Jamie and Stevie Freeman / Hatful of Rain
Jamie and Stevie Freeman have their fingers in many pies! Firstly they own one of the finest record/music stores (Union Music Store) that I have been to in the UK in which they don’t just sell records CD’s instruments and clothes, they also put on a weekly live music session as well. They also put on gigs and own a record label. They have some great acts on their label and that’s how I got to hear of Hatful of Rain as Stevie Sent me their album and straight away I booked them for a live session and as Jamie is also a fine singer songwriter with a very fine album under his belt and another in the pipeline I thought I would get him in to play a few tunes as well.
Danny Champ or Danny George Wilson
Danny Champ or Danny George Wilson (from Danny and the Champions of the World) is without a doubt a London and beyond legend he never stops gigging and is one of the best live performers that I know and has a massive following everywhere on this planet it seems!
Rumour has it that the night that Tupac Shakur was shot the last CD that he had been listing to was Danny’s old band Grand Drive! The CD was still in Tupac’s CD player after the shooting. When I asked Danny about this today he said he doesn’t have a clue where this rumour came from but he said “about once a month someone will ask me about it” we will never know.
