July 2015 SUMMER FESTIVAL SEASON in full swing
Midway through summer festival season 2015 and heres the latest review of the KING SIZE SLIM solo set at ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL of BRITAIN....taken from efestivals.co.uk........
" In my view though, King Size Slim gave the standout performance of the weekend. His fat roots boogie sound just blew me away. One man and a steel resonator guitar which he worked mercilessly to produce an irresistible groove to back his big bluesy voice. Hard for any audience to resist, and in the confines of the Festival's compact third stage – the Solar Powered Big Top – it was overwhelming. People sang and stomped along joyously. Slim responded by unplugging and doing his thing old school style, without amplification, which took the whole experience up another level. Judging by audience reaction and the queue for his CDs, I wasn't the only one to feel the set fill my heart and touch my soul. This was the real deal, authentic acoustic roots music."
