Scotts Smokin’ Blues, Brews & Barbeque

30 Sep

No charge / 4pm

Part of the inaugural Waitaki Arts Festival.

Scotts Brewing Co. pit master will be turning out the tastiest Texan-style barbecue ribs on the reverse-flow offset smokehouse for this smokin’ blues show, served with a side of lyrical stylin’s from Tom Rodwell… best washed down with Scotts’ smoked special blues brew – the Smoky Joe. A great way to wind up the afternoon on the Scotts beer lawn.

 
Sensational blues from Tom Rodwell’s uniquely primitivist and dance-orientated take on rhythm and blues music takes influences from calypso, slave-era spirituals and West African juju music – making his playing thoughtful, hard to categorise, yet instantly accessible. Rodwell was a key collaborator with Don McGlashan on his new album of original songs, and produced a documentary on slave-era gospel music for Radio New Zealand.

 
“Rodwell’s extraordinary revision of blues and spirituals always gets the joint jumping.”  Metro
