American retro rockers Rival Sons stopped by the legendary Juke Joint Studio to record three songs during their visit at the Notodden Blues Festival this summer. The video shows a beautiful acoustic version of their song “Where I’ve Been” from the Great Western Valkyrie album.
We arrived in Sierre to enjoy their festival over the weekend. It had already started however on Wednesday 9th July 2014 with concerts by Dana Fuchs and Popa Chubby on the big stage, and Thomas Schoeffler Jr and The Vinyl on the “Village Scene”. According to the programme Ana Popovic and Uriah Heep alternated on the main stage on Thursday 10th, and Marco Pandolfi and The Coconut Kings on the other one. We weren’t lucky enough to enjoy those concerts, but if anyone is interested in seeing some of the best moments they can visit the Flickr page of Christophe Losberger who managed to capture the music in images of great aesthetic beauty, and whom we had the pleasure to meet and share good times with in Sierre.
Norway’s Queen of the Blues, winner of EBC 2012, released her new album on July 31 «My Mother’s Blues», the same day playing also at the opening of Notodden Blues Festival!
