Upton Blues Festival this weekend..I'm running the music at The White Lion Hotel, with Tony Stokes of '58 DeLuxe. From 12.30 pm on Saturday there will be the famous White Lion Open Mic & Jam..all day. If you want to play, just turn up and we'll try and fit everyone in...if you want to listen and get a seat, I advise turning up early, because its always popular.
The landlord Jon always puts on a splendid selection of real ales and ciders, and some delicious and reasonably priced food. In the evening kicking off around 8.30pm, Chickenbone John and Lil' Dave Smith will be opening for '58 DeLuxe, and we'll doubtless be be rocking past midnight.
On Sunday we have a fantastic line-up :12.30pm my band Chickenbone Blues, 1.30pm Jim Crawford - an amazing singer, guitarist and slide guitar player - if you like slide guitar DO NOT MISS this! 2.30pm John Dentons' Blues Raiders, and to finish off the afternoon, I'm pleased to announce the triumphant return of Dave David Bristow and his Foregate Steeet Blues Band. Last year they were the highlight of the weekend, so don't miss them! I'll also have selection of cigar box guitars, books, slides and accessories on sale.https://youtu.be/yb9yq-G-F2Ihttps://youtu.be/of7P74sCXcwhttps://youtu.be/RXZIzN3TWPM
Oh that was to be expected. I think the build time overshoot caused the camera girl to have to leave and left the editing guy holding the camera so there was no practical way to get the editing done on time and caused the setback in posting the series.
I would have used two mics in the shoot, the omni in the room and a directional one on the camera in left and right sterio and edited down to mono in production depending on which one had best results. Simple setup simple to edit in real time to, just a slider.
It was good watching them build.
It seems that the crimson guys all learned valuable lessons about CBG builds over the weekend. Sure you can build a good guitar in a day surrounded by everything you need but builds often have complications including "filming practicalities".
It looks like they all built a really nice CBG though. I picked up a few good hints watching them. Thanks Dante, for pointing out this was available to watch.
Aww man! I was enjoying watching these guys on crimson do their build.. Where's the last part of the build series?
Another of my occasional hard sell postings. We've just got back form a week's trading at Glastonbury and are getting moving again now that are are recovered. We've got loads of new string sets, for 3, 4 and 6 string, different tunings, but all USA made d'Addario top quality stuff...new specially selected "balanced tension" sets too.
New string sets
Also, we've just launched our new range of UK made stainless steel parts - tailpieces, jack socket plates and tone &volume control plates. These are our exclusive designs, laser cut in chunky brushed stainless steel.
