May 21st, 2012

Bill Sheffield from Georgia USA performs on Pete Christie's set at Portsmouth Hoy on Poole Quay in Dorset

This great night was at Portsmouth Hoy on Poole Quay, in Poole Dorset UK, on Friday 4 May 2012. Authentic Blues musician, Bill Sheffield was over from his home town of Georgia in USA; on a night off, before his UK Tour started and he come by to watch fellow musician Pete Christie’s set.

Bill Sheffield and Pete Christie met up a few years ago at a ‘house jam’; that’s what happens when all your mates are musicians. Bill Sheffield’s nick name of ‘The big bluesman from Atlanta, Georgia, USA’ is quite apt; Bill has the sweetest  and most unexpected booming voice; great to watch in concert.

Pete  Christie wrote a yet to be release instrumental for Bill Sheffield called ‘Bill’s Blues’ but on this occasion Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing’ prompted Bill and Pete to wow the audience with ‘Vincent Black Lightning’.

You can catch Bill Sheffield touring with Dave Saunders and Pete Christie  is currently touring around the length and breadth of  UK.

“Matt is the most outstanding live blues/Americana performer you will ever see”

Pete Christie

Acoustic Folk Rock

The way he explores rhythm and the dynamics of the instrument is a real education. His use of the loop station, and a few subtle dabs on his effects pedals, layering rhythms and sounds, is mesmerising.
