Appreciation
The Picnic Sessions is an uncut diamond, the perfect expression of what happens when five talented musicians with a love of Blues & roots Americana get together and play and sing, with no pre-determined idea of the outcome. You can hear the relaxed enjoyment and spontaneity as they swap instrumental roles, add harmonies and contribute ideas. It's a 'back porch' session without the porch! This cd follows Siegal's much lauded 'Man And Guitar,' a BBC recording of his solo performance at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Live Nation's London Bluesfest. Both cds confirm Siegal's position as the finest blues voice the UK has produced since the iconic names of the sixties British Blues boom.
