Michael Messer has been listed as one of the greatest slide guitarists ever, alongside Duane Allman & Ry Cooder. His playing encompasses the entire history of the blues, but is totally individual and contemporary. Messer’s haunting vocals ooze authenticity and integrity. Michael has recently appeared in his own ‘Blues Slide Guitar’ episode of the BBC CBeebies TV series, ‘Zingzillas’. Michael also has a successful brand of MM guitar products, including ‘Michael Messer Resonator Guitars’, ‘Michael Messer National Guitar Strings’, and Michael Messer Slide Guitar Tuition DVDs. "Michael Messer is one of the finest slide guitar players on the planet” - Time Out, London. http://www.michaelmesser.co.uk/
Michael Messer: & Second Mind Band 11 February, 8pm Michael Messer and the Second Mind Bandhave natural style and originality. The material is fresh contemporary blues with a post war Chicago flavour. Rolling-&-tumbling-slide-guitar-blues presented with a style & capacity only few players can attain. The 17th International Guitar Festival of Great Britain was opened by one of the best guitarists in the world. Michael’s self-deprecating manner and pure musicianship shine naturally, a master of his instrument, his music almost creating a genre of his own. If you need to look for analogies there is much here; not justDuane Allman and Ry Cooder, try Moby, Little Axe, even Brian Jones. www.michaelmesser.co.uk
