This is a rare Home Country Gig for the Aberdonian Duo of Guitarist and Singer Songwriter, Steve Crawford, and legendary Harmonica Player, Spider MacKenzie. They are Big in Europe, having made the step up from the club circuit to larger venues. Now based in Germany, Steve Crawford has established himself on the Music Scene there, winning a Best Folk Album nomination in the prestigious Critics’ Awards for his work with Fiddler, Sabrina Palm; also playing with popular Cajun band, Le Clou. Spider MacKenzie is the go-to Harmonica session player for many other musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. Christine Albert, the former Chair of the organisation, which stages the Grammys, commented about Spider – “It is rare to come across a harmonica player with such a genuine empathy for American music. He is an incredibly talented musician”. Steve and Spider’s most recent Album, Celticana, recorded in Austin, Texas was described by Folking.com – “As good a combination of vocal, guitar and harmonica as you’re likely to hear, decorating songs that remind me of the quality and easy skill of early Jackson Browne.” Admission is £11 (Payable at the Door or tickets can be reserved by emailing kenneth@fivefurlongs.plus.com).
