Alt-country-US-cult-icon meets Belgian artists
Jim White is a cult figure within the alt-country scene. He was discovered in the late’90s by David Byrne and signed to his Luaka Bop label. White has already worked with big names like Joe Henry, Bill Frisell, Morcheeba, Aimee Mann, …
Legendary is his tour through the underbelly of the southern US in the BBC documentary ‘Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus', about musicians who were inspired by the culture of The South. He is a born 'storyteller', whereby stories and songs merge seamlessly. His songs inhabit an entirely own universe in which exotic and typical country instruments, such as the banjo, undertake a hallucinating musical journey.
This summer, Jim will be hanging out in Belgium to make an alt-country-postpunk album with double bass player Nicolas Rombouts (ex-Dez Mona, Stef Kamil Carlens). Guitarist Geert Hellings (Guido Belcanto) will play on this album too. In AB Salon, you can expect a warm evening of old and new material by this master narrator.
