Seasick Steve live at the Rockhal
(MSS) After a memorable performance at the Rockhal in 2010, Seasick Steve is back in Luxembourg to play the blues on his home made instruments on October 27. wort.lu/en has 3x2 tickets up for grabs!
Following “You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks” from 2011, Steven Wold, better known as Seasick Steve, released his new album “Hubcap Music” in April this year.
The album mixes his traditional blues style with boogie, and according to the 72-year old's hand written press release the album got the very name because “I play some songs on a guitar made out of 2 hubcaps and a garden hoe”.
Like all his previous albums, Hubcap Music was recorded live straight on tape - in other words, Seasick Steve hasn't used any computers to produce this album at all.
Seasick Steve made his breakthrough in 2001, when he released his first album after moving to Norway. Until his early twenties, Seasick Steve made a living travelling freight trains and finding work along the way, often living as a hobo.
It wasn't until the 60s he started touring and performing with fellow musicians, and up to the late 90s he worked as a recording engineer and producer.
