Tyne Bar Blues Festival. July 14

The annual all-dayer. Non-stop blues down at the Ouseburn Delta. The outdoor stage for once came into its own. Beer, shades and tans occupied every vantage point on a jumpin’ hot day. Chicago blues, Mississippi Delta blues, West Coast, all blues. A flying visit (an alternative option beckoned) hit upon TC and the Moneymakers. TC (Tom Cocks – harmonica & vocals) and the boys- Karl Moon (guitar), Lee Parry (bass), Andy Westbrook (drums) - made the journey from York. The front man vocalist blew a mean harp backed by a tight trio of guitar, bass and drums. Fifties Chicago blues, a Texas shuffle, straight vocals complimented authentic blues guitar throughout a well-received set. If you happen to be in York…Local lad Bob Bates brought along three guitars and any number of tunes, to take us On the Road Again by way of Bo Diddley, Robert Johnson to a Mannish Muddy Waters. The festival main attraction Lyndon Anderson would soon be closing a perfect Ouseburn blues day but the call of a Horn Dog up on the hill made your reviewer hit the trail (Hellhound or not).

Russell.
