Americana and the Blues - intertwined music that works: Mo' Kauffey and Jake Loggins
Just saw a real nice act last night at Stargazers: "Mo' Kauffey" - who plays Americana "folk'n'blues" (don't say it fast with an English accent) played together with area blues musician Jake Loggins. Jake has really evolved since the first time I saw him.
Loggin's has always had this balls-out blues style but last night opened with "Mo" on an acoustic guitar filling in with these sweet dynamically styled riffs against Kauffey's raspy folky music. Jake's full band came on and played with Kauffey, then the band took sole possesion of the stage.
