Entirely acoustic guitar and voice, this is pure traditional blues. The songs are a mix of originals written by Gee, a song each from John Lee Hooker and R. L. Burnside, plus some traditional songs. Good stuff here for blues fans.
Blues Festival E-Guide
The pure simplicity of hearing a world class artist alone in a room with their instrument is a rare event not often witnessed by many let alone caught on tape and recorded for posterity. Armed with only his acoustic guitar, a list of favorite songs and his wits, 2013 international Blues challenge Solo champion, Little G Weevil, sat alone in the vaunted stone room at Supersize Recording earlier this year in his native country of Hungary for a spontaneous recording, simply titled Live Acoustic Session.
Weevil described the day; “My latest and most spontaneous work to date. I walked into a studio, had three beers, and played 16 tunes. It came out mighty bluesy, 100% live, no editing.” Obviously inspired by the sound of the room with its handcrafted fieldstone walls, high ceiling and wood floors, Weevil delivered a performance of Blues and roots and rambles with fire and zeal, as if he were playing on the stage in a grand auditorium.
Little G Weevil is an artist who refuses to be pigeonholed, with a career full of varied material and colorful, unique cross genre collaborations. This strong release demonstrate he is not afraid to go back to basics and revel in his roots.
During his travels he shared the stage with legendary musicians such as Johnny Winter, the Neville Brothers, Terry Evans, John Popper, Lee Oskar, Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets with Sam Myers, Denise Lasalle, Otis Taylor, Big Jack Johnson, Lonnie Shields, Lurrie Bell, Willie King, Ian Siegal and many more.
Live Acoustic Session was nominated for a 2021 Blues Blast Music Award for “Live Blues Album.”
