1st November 2004
At 8.00 pm on Thursday this week (4th November 2004) US blues artist,
, returns to perform an exclusive session live on the
Paul Jones R&B Show
In addition, Paul will , apparently, be delving into "his record box to pull
out some delights old and new". Cool, man.
newspaper had this to say about Catfish: "Catfish Keith was a
solo revelation, playing subtle versions of lost blues songs using the classic
small acoustic and national steel guitars on which he invoked the hard, complex
picking and chord work of the original country bluesmen.
The extraordinary thing is that he makes each song sound new: tough songs are
delivered with a smile and a nod of reverence with vocals that pursue the black
edge of the music and the often overlooked sly humour of the ancients of
Memphis. See him if you can".
