Tim Holehouse (Nomadic)
Tim Holehouse has spent the last 10 years on the road touring his ass off to play his music to the people of the world, playing his brand of mutant delta blues (delta blues played by a guy who was raised on a musical diet of being in Hardcore bands like Minor Threat, Hüsker Dü, Minute men and Black Flag). Not touring for huge profits (just enough to get by) or to seek fame, just a pure love of music, travelling and adventure.
„The archetypal image of a bluesman, outcast from proper society and stalked by personal demons. The defining characteristic of Delta blues is instrumentation and an emphasis on rhythm and „bottleneck“ slide. When Holehouse arrived in a new town, he would play for tips on street corners or in front of the local barbershop or a restaurant. Holehouse also had an uncanny ability to establish a rapport with his audience – in every town in which he stopped, Holehouse would establish ties to the local community that would serve him well when he passed through again a month or a year later. Ok these things where written about Delta Blues Musicians of the 1920’s and 1930’s but sums up what i am trying to do now. I travel I play music for music’s sake. It has its roots in the delta blues with my own personal twist on it. I live by my rules and those rules are best summed up by something a friend of mine from Winnipeg told me once. Creativity, Adventure and People.“
Fabian Maddison is a well travelled and experienced musician, first taking to the stage at the age of 16, he has since gone to front a string of bands from straight out raucous punk to soothing folk. Recently building his experience of festivals and gigs with “The Jack Ratts” and “The Maddison Tarheels” he is now taking to the stage as a solo artist. Be prepared to be inspired as this young man gives a spectacular performance of traditional American old time and bluegrass, the message of which still bares as much relevance as ever in our modern society.
