Big Creek Slim @ HeadQuarters

  • HQ Valdemarsgade 1 Aarhus Denmark
This evening it is time to present the Danish participation at the European Blues Challenge in Riga earlier this year 
Big Creek Slim ,or Marc Rune as he really is baptized ,has a voice ,feeling and sense of Afro- American blues unparalleled. He is an outstanding musician on stage ,where as it were enthralled by the raw, unpolished and especially very present performance
He originally comes from the Ikast region ,where the weststerly shallower streams according to local sources has inspired the name. But an early meeting with blues and especially inspired by singers such .Muddy Waters ,John Lee Hooker and Lightnin ' Hopkins immediately changed this young musician's life. Big Creek Slim is today a true Blues Hobo which for several years has lived and lambasted around the US states of Louisiana Mississippi ,Arkansas, Alabama and Tennessee.

In the past 10 years he has developed his own style ,which has deep roots in the early American blues .Countless trips with the guitar has brought him to many, and he is now living in Brazil, where he plays the blues at taverns, clubs and on the street - that is full time. Periodically, he, however is in DK, as was the case in the late summer of this year, where he appeared on the Blue Festival in Aalborg, moreover, with the evening's excellent orchestra in the back.

All the while the booking of this concert has been confirmed already back in the early summer of 2014 there in October, however, ticked news into the Danish blues scene that a really fine visit from California, USA was:
One of the currently most interesting artists and agents of acoustic blues people, Nathan James is coming to Denmark, and he will naturally participate in this concert. Nathan James has toured in Denmark several times, including with musicians from Big Creek Slim Band and he has indeed played a concert in Aarhus Blue Association back in 2011 in connection with spring Blue Weekend. He has especially appeared on the Spot Festival in 2008, where he and harmonica player Ben Hernandez literally got the crowd on their feet and thus kicked down the door of the American country blues, folk blues, RAG fingerstyle music - traditional as original.
