Mo Scott Trio @ SummerTyne Americana - July 20

Mo Scott (vocals); Gary Dunn (guitar); Neil Harland (double bass)

Typical, weeks of unbroken sunshine then on the first day of this year's SummerTyne Americana Festival it rained. Not much but, with electrics on the outdoor Jumpin' Hot Club stage, it necessitated a switch indoors to Sage Gateshead's riverfront concourse.
As a rule, Bebop Spoken Here doesn't follow or report on all things Americana, however, there are exceptions. One such is blues shouter par excellence Mo Scott. Not that this was a blues set, far from it, with Mo tailoring her set to the Americana theme.  
Accompanying Mo were bassist Neil Harland and guitarist Gary Dunn, two first call musicians and long-time associates of our vocalist. The ten-gallon Stetsons sat, and stood, right across the concourse as Mo held them rapt. Ry Cooder's Borderline (Mo at pains to say just how good the American is), the Neville Brothers' Yellow Moon with Gary Dunn impressing the cowpokes, and to close an all too short set, Muddy Waters' Blow Wind Blow
Americana is up and running. If you're yet to get your tickets for Davina and the Vagabonds (Saturday, 10:30pm) don't delay, it'll be one of the gigs of the year!
