Topping off the “Tuesday’s Bluesdays” menu, and making it look easy, Hugh Pool lit up the New York downtown scene at The Village Lantern. Whether heart and boot pounding power or sweet tunes pretty as you please, Hugh’s crisp Blues guitar and harmonica sound draw locals and tourists in from the street.
Manager Todd Robinson testifies, “When you need a Bluesman and you’re lucky Hugh is in town, he’s the first one to call. He’s the man.”
And in the words of an impressed Acoustic Folk Bluesman Stuart Michael Burns (patron from Coastal Bend, Texas), “If it ain’t live, it ain’t music.” http://www.reverbnation.com/stuartmichaelburns/
Hugh usually performs with his band or with Flute Master John Ragusa as the incomparable duo; Mulebone. They frequently tour the U.S. and Europe, won “Blues Artist of the Year” at radio stations across the country and opened for notables such as Arlo Guthrie, a couple summers back.
