Live Video Interview with UK Bluesman John Crampton

John CramptonWe hope you can join us on Thursday, February 12 at 1pm (PST) for a live video interview with the amazing UK blues musician John Crampton.

Visit our interview page on the Blues at Centrum community site for details on how to participate.

Crampton was born in London, and  is self taught on the guitar and
harmonica. John started out as a solo performer 13 years ago creating a
very big and powerful sound of hard hitting and very danceable uptempo
blues and bluegrass. John plays slide or bottleneck style on a 1930’s
National steel guitar with harmonica and thumping his foot on foot box
to provide a driving rhythm. John plays mostly his own songs.

We like this quote about John from Blues Matters Magazine:

"… John Crampton doesn't so much approach the raw blues of Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker and Bukka White with reverence as wrestle it to the floor and stamp his unique mark on it!"

We hope to see you at the interview, but if not, we'll make the interview available as a podcast for your viewing and listening pleasure.
