This week I have an interview with British Male Vocalist of the year Ian Siegal.
The British Blues Awards gave him that award this year, he won Band of the Year in 2010. Awards were also given to three former A1Blues interviewees Joanne Shaw Taylor for British Female Vocalist of the Year, Oli Brown British Blues Band of the Year, and Matt Schofield, of course for British Blues Guitarist of the Year.
Ian Siegal’s new CD The Skinny is an Englishman doing his best North Mississippi Blues style playing. Ian went to Mississippi to record this CD with people from the hill country in order to get something that would resemble those sounds and the sounds of R.L. Burnside.
