Fingers And Thumbs with Andy Gunn (Andy Gunn)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2019

This was an eccentric, intimate Saturday night blues session with a friendly, laid-back trio keen to engage with and entertain their audience. The variety of guitars delighted me, particularly the 12 string Portuguese guitar and national steel guitar – and Gunn can certainly play them! Despite the unexpected variety of the programme Gunn was at his best when playing and singing the classics; Sam and Dave’s ‘When Something is Wrong with my Baby’ just bled emotion, while Fats Domino’s ‘Walking to New Orleans’ had a real connection with the audience. Harmonica and piano supported well, and we were spirited away to New Orleans with Edinburgh Castle as a backdrop.
