Tiny Legs Tim - BE
In response to the warm reception of his most recent album, ‘Melodium Rag’ (released in Febuary 2017), the Ghent-based blues musician Tiny Legs Tim is delighted to annouce the release of another new album.’Live at Sint-Jacobs’ – his fifth release – was recorded live during the Gent Festival and offers a broad selection from the 2,5 hour show Tim and his outstanding band performed on the main stage of Sint-Jacobs on the 16th of July 2016. An evening and recording to cherish!
Tiny Legs Tim in great shape at Het Trefpunt, the heart and soul of the Gent Festival!
The performance as headliner on the main stage of Sint-Jacobs has been the highlight of Tim’s musical journey so far. Originally Tiny Legs Tim was a one-man-band, but opening for (among others) Pete Doherty, Richard Rhompson, John Mayall and Bombino, allowed him to evolve into a solid live act. ‘Live at Sint-Jacobs’ showcases a confident artist, who, with his band, enjoyed the magic atmosphere of that night.
The energetic concert at Sint-Jacobs follows 18 months after the release of Tim’s third album ‘Stepping Up’. Thanks to numerous national and international concerts preceding the live recording (like Dranouter, Blues Peer, EBC in Italy, AB, 4ad, Ribs & Blues, Eurosonic, Hoogtevrees, Sniester,…), one hears a tight-knit blues-act on the album. The many miles on the road together with Steven Troch (harmonica), drummer Frederik Van den Berghe and bassist Karel Algoed have bore fruit. ‘Live At Sint-Jacobs’ is full energetic and swinging music. “Tiny Legs Tim won the two hour home match at Sint-Jacobs”, according to Het Nieuwsblad newspaper.
The Gent-based artist Tiny Legs Tim is one of the most important figures in the Gent Blues Scene. He is the co-organiser of the Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Festival and is one of the parties behind the bues jams and club concerts that take place in the Missy Sippy Blues & Roots Club. It’s clear: Tiny Legs is a mainstay in the blues & roots circuit.
