CD: General Delivery
Serendipity can happen when two talented musicians who happen to be friends and kindred spirits get together and set about making music in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
Armed with acoustic instruments including resophonic guitar, bass, Hawaiian guitar, mandolin,ukulele and a fews days off of their respective bands busy touring schedules, Ekoostik Hookah and The Colin John Band, Cliff Starbuck and Colin John have created a rootsy and rollicking acoustic album with one foot respectfully placed in the past and the other firmly planted in the future.
General Delivery features individualized stylistic acknowledgements to Bukka White,Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Reverend Gary Davis, Sol Hoopii,Skip James,Blind Willie Johnson and others while showcasing and allowing Cliff's formidable bluegrass and Americana influences to meld seamlessly and shiningly with Colin's open-tuned blues and Hawaiian-influenced guitar excursions.
We hope that General Delivery finds its way to your cd player, ears and soul, so that you too may experience the serendipity that is the result of this collaboration.
