Little G Weevil Concert, Mupa, 11 February
Born and raised in Budapest, the blues guitarist and songwriter Little G Weevil moved to the old home of blues some ten years ago, aiming to attain the highest possible standard in his chosen genre.

His world is old-school southern blues mixed in with rock chords and modern rhythms. He took first place in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and has also won the American Blues Music Award.

During this Müpa Budapest concert, he will introduce songs from his new album Three Chords Too Many, about which he has told "this album was my most spontaneous so far, thanks to my friend Paul Niehaus. The first five songs were made in the studio in Saint Louis, jamming with Paul on a winter afternoon.

And since we also recorded some deep, moody blues material, I decided to keep these tunes as well. A bit later, a few ideas came to me during my Hungarian tour, so I invited one or two old friends to join me in the studio. And how did it turn out?

Get yourself a glass of fine wine, put on your headphones and turn on some of that good old honest blues we love to play.”

As well as featuring some outstanding Hungarian musicians and G's permanent drummer, the Atlanta-based Afro-American Daniel Harper will be among the guest performers - playing this year for the first time ever in Hungary.
