TEXU
texu klingen wie keine andere Band in Deutschland. Die drei Musiker sind stark verwurzelt in den Traditionenen verschiedener europäischer Länder. Die treibende, unwahrscheinlich kraftvolle Wirkung des asturischen Dudelsacks (Gaita) von Borja Baragaño trifft den von Mark Bloomer geschaffenen traditionellen Groove auf modern klingendem Schlagzeug. Dazu das Gitarrenspiel von Brian Haitz, das innovative Fusion-Anteile dazu bringt. Elektronische Samples und Klänge transportieren steinalte gälische Lieder ins 21. Jahrhundert.

STEVE CRAWFORD & SABRINA PALM
Steve Craword ist Sänger und Gitarrist aus Aberdeen, Schottland. Mit seinen Bands wie Catford und Ballad of Crows, sowie im Duo mit dem Mundharmonikaspieler Spider MacKenzie ist er schon durch ganz Europa und darüber hinaus getourt. Gemeinsam mit der Bonner Fiddlerin Sabrina Palm präsentiert der Schotte nun Musik aus seiner Heimat. Mit seiner einfühlsamen Stimme entführt er die Zuhörer mit den Geschichten und Balladen Schottlands. Es geht in den Liedern um Liebe und Tod, die See und die Berge. Bei fetzigen Jigs, Reels und Strathspeys begeistert Sabrina Palm auf ihrer Fiddle das Publikum. Da bleibt kein Fuß ruhig. Die Bonnerin spielt seit ihrer Jugend keltische Musik, tourt u.a. mit der Band Whisht! und hat als erste Deutsche die Prüfung zum Lehrer für traditionelle Musik in Dublin bestanden. Steve Crawford und Sabrina Palm ergänzen sich so perfekt wie die verschiedenen Geschmacksnuancen eines guten schottischen Whiskys. Eine gute Grundlage für einen schönen Abend.

Keep Hauling Lead Sheet – PDF to download

Keep Hauling Lead Sheet thumb

Words, music and chords

Keep Hauling
Words & Music: Andrew Cadie – Publisher: Steeplejack Music (c) + (p) 2015

When life keeps hitting you hard me boys
Keep hauling keep hauling
And your woes just seem to outweigh your joys
Keep hauling boys

When true love seems so far away…
The tide will flood your heart some day…

Keep hauling Ho!
Rouse and raise your voice
Hold your course and don’t let go
Keep hauling boys

If your guiding star is in cloudy skies…
You’ll find your way in the bright sunrise…
If you gave your best and your heart stayed true…
There’s only one thing left to do…

If you fought so hard but you lost your hold…
Remember fate rewards the bold…

Whatever your ship or wherever your sea…
Whatever your storm or rocks might be…

From the Broom Bezzums album, No Smaller Than the World. 2015.
