After many years of planning, we can finally present one of the best soul and blues voices with a solo program. Bandleader, guitarist, songwriter and singer Andrew Duncanson is perhaps one of the best kept secrets in international blues. While Andrew has been known to insiders for over 20 years as a musician with the Kilborn Alley Blues Band, at the same time he continues to fly somewhat under the radar of a larger audience. This is a pity, as the wider audience is thus also unaware of his extraordinary soul-soaked voice.
Andrew is strongly influenced by Little Milton. His voice is without a doubt one of the most expressive and best in international blues and soul. Andrew's music has a strong connection to the best releases of the legendary Stax label. His music has a large portion of soul and thus embodies an independent musical style that delights both blues and soul fans.
Andrew has been playing with his band, the Kilborn Alley Blues Band, since 2000. Just one year later they won the award for best blues band at the Bean Blossom Blues Festival in Indiana. Their first four CDs are released on the label of Nick Moss (Blue Bella). In 2007 they are nominated as 'Best New Blues Band' for the US Blues Music Award. Andrew is named the best new blues voice Keb Mo or George Thorogood. The critic Andy Grigg writes euphorically that Kilborn Alley Blues Band are one of the best blues bands he has heard in the last forty years.
Kilborn Alley Blues Band first appeared on Groove Now in 2013. Since that time, we have been in contact with Andrew several times about presenting an independent project with him. Since Andrew is an extremely likable person and puts the band first, it has taken time for us to present this now.
Since one of his big supporters was Nick Moss, it also makes sense that Nick's band is supporting at the concert. With Nick Moss' band around harmonica player Dennis Gruenling, pianist Taylor Streiff, bassist Rodrigo Mantovani and drummer Patrick Seals, Andrew has a band that supports him perfectly in his program. All musicians know and appreciate each other for many years.
