Cool and sunburnt, all at once

212

This time last year, Patrick Sweany was celebrating the release of his eighth full-length album Ancient Noise – a masterpiece that slings you ‘round like a rollercoaster. From “Up and Down” – a howling good time with a playful video, to “Cry of Amedé” – a tale of Creole musician Amedé Ardoin, who met an unfortunate end, Sweany keeps drawing you in with that soul-twisting growl. His appeal seems to transcend generations, and it has been said that echoes of Sam Cooke come through his music. You can hear this bluesman that the Nashville Tennessean called an “effortlessly cool, sunburnt soul” at the Cathouse on Friday and Saturday at 9:30 p.m., If you don’t like the late-night scene you can hear him at Chelsea’s on Sunday at 2 p.m.

The Eureka Springs Rhythm & Blues Weekend features four free acts in Basin Park on Friday and Saturday. The line-up includes our own award-winning Brick Fields Band, they take the stage on Saturday at 2 p.m., show up and show some love for this Eurekan blues band.
