Our favorite smilin’ blues man Orville Giddings is a favorite guest at the Rhumb Line this week. Tomorrow (Thursday) he’s Dave Sag’s guest and Sunday he’s with Allen Estes. Orville is great solo, with others and with his full band, who you can see the day before Thanksgiving at the Stone Soup in Ipswich.
Back in April we featured Orville on gimmesound.com, with videos of him performing solo, with Allen Estes and with his band. See those featured videos here.
But don’t wait for tomorrow. Tonight is the night of great Gloucester guest musicians. Brian King, Fly Amero, Steve Caraway and Dennis Monagle are all hosting excellent guests. See the full lineup here.
Check out this duo of Orville with Allen Estes on his show, Local Music Seen. Before they start, Orville talks about how he performs this song at different tempos depending on who he’s playing with. Fascinating.
