    If there is one artist who has left his mark over the past ten years on the blues world, it is Ian Siegal, the man with the fabulously croaky voice and his slide guitar. If our calculations are correct, this is the fifth time he has featured on our poster and that is fully justified in our opinion. Every time he was here before, he played sets that vast numbers of visitors remembered for a long time to come. This time he is coming without his friends from the Mississippi Delta, and will be alone with his own band. Last year, Ian came out with three stunning CDs and we would not be disappointed if his set featured a good collection of tracks from “Live In Amsterdam”. Can you imagine seeing with your own eyes how Ian and gifted guitarist Dusty Ciggaar will blow new life into Tom Russel’s “Gallo del Cielo”? But even if that track doesn’t make it into the collection for the set, we already know that the first evening will end in style and that a great number of you will head back to your car or campsite humming along to “Buelah Land”. We can think of no better way to spend this short summer night….

    In the gallery of special guitarists this Louisiana man, the “King of Slideco” ranks very high. When he released his first album almost thirty-four years ago, we here in Europe did not believe our ears: that squelchy, fat slide-sound reminded us of nothing else we knew, and soon it showed to be the result of the material Sony used and of his special way of playing, the so-called behind the slide technique. That originality brought him touring work with the late Clifton Chenier, in whose Zydecoband he was the only white man, with John Mayall, and especially with John Hiatt, with whom he was many years one of The Goners.
    You can hear his guitar on tens of records, from Little Feat and Gov’t Mule up to Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, John Hiatt and Johnny Winter.
    Ten years ago he stood on this stage as well. That was a festive edition in its time, same as it is now again. For this reason we once more serve you a nice caldron of swampblues.
