Kelly Joe Phelps has long been one of the most talked about acoustic bluesmen in the Pacific Northwest. He’s got cred in the blues world and indie world too. He can play hundred year old blues tunes and make them his own or he sing one of his own songs and floor people as diverse as Steve Earl, Cameron Crowe, Bill Frisell and Tim O’Brien.
His new live disc Tap The Red Cane Whirlwind is going to be released on Feb 1 on Rykodisc. Kelly recorded this record in his two favorite haunts McCabe’s and The Freight and Salvage. These are very intimate and soft songs. Here are two songs from this upcoming disc.
