If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

MICK KOLASSA – “Taylor Made Blues” (Swing Suit MMK 032016)


The very personable singer and acoustic guitarist Mick Kolassa – a.k.a. Michissippi Mick – is on the Board Of Directors of The Blues Foundation, based in Memphis, Tennessee. That means he is ideally placed to call on some of the city’s top musicians, and for this, his third album, that’s just what he did when he popped into the River City’s legendary Ardent Studios. Mind you, many of these have already appeared on this set’s predecessors: the up-and-coming Jeff…

SHARI PUORTO – My Obsession (Little Lightning Productions)

 Shari Puorto | My Obsession


It is always good to come across an album that, on first listening and all subsequent plays, holds your interest right through from beginning to end, and this certainly qualifies on that score, from the early 70s rock sound of the introduction to the otherwise funky blues of ‘It’s A Damn Shame’ to the closing notes of the oh-so soulful cover of Percy Sledge’s ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ 44 minutes later. Shari is now based in Los Angeles, and although she…

THE LUCKY LOSERS – In Any Town (Dirty Cat DCR1505)


Now this is a rather fine set of blues, roots and Americana from this male/ female duo out of San Francisco. The opener is a true duet between singer Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz, the latter also adding some fine harmonica playing to a number reminiscent of Fontella Bass and Bobby McClure’s 60s soul sides; the closer is another true duet, a lovely rendition of Bobby Charles’ ‘Small Town Talk’ with understated horns. Between these two are items like the…

Isaiah B Brunt – A Moment In Time (Own label)


The Australian blues singer and multi-instrumentalist Isaiah B Brunt continues his love affair with New Orleans on this all-original set, recorded in the Crescent City and featuring horns and The Meters’ bass player George Porter Jr. – and some of that funk has certainly rubbed off, lend an ear to ‘May I Dance With You’.  There is a little of Doctor John’s laconic approach on the album (Isaiah’s vocals have a strong but relaxed feel throughout),…
