Daniel Lohues, singer of the band Skik, already was captured in his youth by the traditional Mississippi-blues. It was Harry Muskee who later initiated him little by little into the secrets of this style of music. Last year Lohues was sent to America for a few weeks to look for the blues, for a radio series of RTV-Drenthe, in co-operation with the VPRO. He visited the graves of legends like Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson and Freddie King, the cotton plantation where Muddy Waters rode on his tractor and recorded a few self-written blues songs. He eventually realized his childhood-dream too: going into the studio with real local blues musicians - the bottles of gin within reach and a hum in the amplifier. The CD is out in the stores, the musicians flew in from the States for a tour. Who is ready for an international set of blues with an added taste of Drenthe.
