HANS THEESSINK: HANS is probably Europe‘s blues export no 1. After more than 7.500 concerts, 50 years "on the road" and more than 30 albums, an instruction video, a songbook and a DVD to his name, HANS THEESSINK has become a roots and blues institution. With his sonorous baritone voice and unmistakable guitar work Hans is in great demand - delighting audiences around the world with his rich and emotional sounds. The US blues press called him "An international blues treasure" and "One of the world's pre-eminent pickers". The legendary Bo Diddley called him "One helluva guitar player".
TERRY EVANS: TERRY hails from Vicksburg, Mississippi. At a very early age he was exposed to gospel music in the local church and knew that singing was his call. In a career that spans over 50 years, Terry has done several albums under his own name and has a long working relationship as a backing vocalist with Ry Cooder. Terry‘s voice is pure "Mississippi Magic" - the real deal and one of the most soulful voices in the business. His singing can be heard on countless productions a.o. with John Lee Hooker, Pops Staples, Eric Clapton and John Fogerty.
HANS THEESSINK & TERRY EVANS - the duo: Hans Theessink and Terry Evans may be from separate sides of the Atlantic Ocean but they work together beautifully and make sense as a natural combination. These two vastly experienced and respected musicians are committed performers who are a perfect foil to each other. Theessink's lazy baritone and Evans' extraordinarily soulful gospel tones are tailor made to blend together with spine-tingling results. Timeless blues -, gospel- and soul related music, comes to live in the capable hands of these two masters. With just two guitars, and two remarkable voices they bring forth honest and straightforward power in a stripped-down musical situation - an unhurried vibe that's contagious and flows with the easy rhythm of buddies with mutual respect having a blast singing and playing together. The duo has released 2 highly acclaimed studio albums so far: VISIONS (nominated for a Blues Music Award in Memphis and winner of a Danish Music Award for best foreign album - feat.: Richard Thompson and Bo Diddley) and DELTA TIME (feat.: Ry Cooder - nominated for an Amadeus Award in Austria). In 2015 they released their album TRUE & BLUE, recorded live in Vienna. Terry and Hans were in great form and the audience experienced an exciting night full of timeless blues- and roots music.
