We present to your attention a new format of Big City Blues concerts, at which we will introduce metropolitan lovers of honest and uncompromising music to the best Ukrainian and foreign blues performers. The first concert of the series will take place on February 23 in the capital's House of Cinema.
In the first part of the concert will be a quartet of one of the most famous Ukrainian harmonica performers from the Dnieper - Konstantin Kolesnichenko. His albums are highly rated in famous foreign music charts, recognized by the leading masters of the genre and surprisingly combine a rare mix of instrumental jazz and swing with blues harmonica. During his musical career, Konstantin managed to perform at several thematic festivals, including the 9th Kiev International Blues Festival, and share the stage with many famous artists: Keith Dunn, Guy Davis, Robert Lighthouse, Eddie Martin, Daniel Jeanrenaud.
In the second part of the concert, the audience will meet with a bluesman from the USA - EB Davis.
Ebili "EB" Davis was born in 1941. At fourteen, EB left Arkansas and village life, and moved to Memphis, which at that time was the real blues capital. Our guest went to the blues school on the famous Bill Street to the music of Bobby Bland, B. B. King, Junior Parker and Albert King.
The 60s and 70s passed for Ebili Davis under the sign of soul in the band The Soulgroovers, based in New York. In the 80s, he moved to Germany (West Berlin) as an employee of the US military communications mission and continued to play blues with local musicians in his spare time. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Ebili decides to stay in Germany, firmly established on the European blues scene.
EB Davis gave lectures and seminars on the history of blues, recorded more than 19 albums and appeared on the stages of more than 60 countries thousands of times - from small clubs to opera houses. And now the original and genuine blues arrives in Ukraine, accompanied by some of the best Ukrainian musicians!
The first concert of the Big City Blues series is a unique and inimitable opportunity to meet with the forever young and always relevant genre for all connoisseurs of real music! We are waiting for you on February 23 at the Cinema House at ul. Saksaganskogo 6.
