Big Bo plays the blues as an one-man-band!
He accompanies his unpolished, but soulful, voice with a 6 & 12 string guitar, a dobro
Among numerous classics, he plays his own work with a pre-dominated pure and powerful delta blues. Emotional acoustic blues, ragtime, delta blues, songs down to the bone lard with virtuoso slide guitar and rudimentary fingerpickin’.
Whether they are his own or classic songs, he makes it all
sound like his own.
This quality makes Big Bo unique!!!
At the age of 12 he got the bluesfever when hearing John Lee Hooker play … Living life the hard way , working with different musicians, he went to Amsterdam doing mostly streetperformances.In 1991 he learns the tricks of the trade from Ronald Abrahams, a skilled bluesman from Chicago. On account of his ‘Big’- sound he got his nickname Big Bo!
26 Years old he returned to his hometown Den Bosch as an experienced bluesman. There he gets acquainted with Mr. Bas, a mouthharp player. In the next 5 years this duo develops into one of the best blues acts in Holland.
After successful CD releases, over 600 performances in Holland, Scandinavia and even in the famous Russian Svetlanov Hall in Moscow, Big Bo wins the Dutch Blues Challenge 2015.
Big Bo’s blues sounds more genuine than ever.
Hearing Big Bo play will be an intensive experience one never forgets!
