Gospel Blues Train exclusive: Guy Davis

This Friday, 1st September from 8.00pm on 100.8 Revival FM, The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman features an exclusive interview with New York City-based blues artist and actor Guy Davis.

Lins was with Guy just before he went on stage at a recent appearance at the Edinburgh Blues Club.

In a long career that has seen him carry on the traditions of his acoustic blues forefathers, Guy Davis has released a number of albums as well as collaborating with fellow Gospel Blues Train guests Brooks Williams and the California Feetwarmers in recent years.

Amongst other things, Lins asked Guy to explain the appeal of the blues and how he came to play the part of mysterious blues legend Robert Johnson in an off-Broadway stage production.

The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman, Friday 1 September 8.00-9.00pm; Saturday 2 September at 7.00-8.00pm and Tuesday 5 September at 10.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.

Gospel Blues Train: exclusive bluesman Jimmie Bratcher

Gospel Blues Train: exclusive bluesman Jimmie Bratcher

This Friday, 25 August from 8.00pm, The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman features an exclusive interview with Kansas City-based bluesman Jimmie Bratcher, also known as the Electric Rev following the release of his most recent album This Is Blues Country which sees the veteran singer/guitarist interpret well-known country songs in the blues style.

Since his debut album Honey In The Rock in 2001, fans of Bratcher’s own brand of laidback but razor sharp electric blues have enjoyed a raft of releases that have in part featured songs that point towards Bratcher’s remarkable journey from drug abuse, dysfunctional relationships and self-destruction to a life-transforming faith in Jesus whilst exhibiting the kind of lead guitar work that quite rightly puts him right up there as one of the best exponents of electric blues on the scene today.

The Gospel Blues Train, Friday 25 August 8.00-9.00pm on 100.8 Revival FM and also available on Catch Up anytime.
