They will be joined by Winfield National Flatpick Guitar Champion, Andy Hatfield of Peoria, Ill. ”
“McPike and Haute Club make 'Bluephoria" a memorable feeling TERRE HAUTE — Mixing teenage mandolin phenom Solly Burton with a band of jazz, folk and blues virtuosos was simply a stroke of genius. The result of that fascinating pairing is “Bluephoria,” the second album by B.G. McPike and the Haute Club. Burton’s staccato fretwork adds a buoyant brightness to the bluesy flair of McPike’s acoustic guitar and the folksy improvisation by violinist Carolyn Dutton, backed by bassist Eric Schatz and drummer John DiCenso. The 10-track CD solidly follows the Haute Club’s tasty 2007 debut “Smooth Landing,” also produced by Don Arney’s Quantum Music. The fun begins immediately with the opening tune, “Back to Indiana.” The genres blend completely, with McPike’s blues riffs anchoring the tune while Dutton — who’s impressive recording resume on fiddle includes sessions with John Sebastian and Dan Hicks, and appearances on Broadway — trades solos with Burton. ”
