Little G Weevil is a completely self-taught guitarist, specializing in the old-time string and country blues sounds of the pre-WWII masters. He started his first band in his European home land in 1998, garnering enough successes to move to Memphis in 2004. He was a resident of the Beale Street scene for some time, busking in that vibrant district. He moved to Georgia in 2009, but made a hugely-triumphant return to the Bluff City for this year’s IBC, winning the whole thing in the Solo/Duo category, as well as the Best Solo Guitarist overall. He has turned that success into the release of “Moving,” his debut for the Vizztone label. There are eleven originals and one scintillating cover that show his prowess as a traditional bluesman, picker, and storyteller.
The set is predominantly Little G and his guitars, but there are a few “band cuts” that utilize Bruce Nazzaro on harp, Danny Vinson on rhythm guitar, Dustin Sergeant on bass, and Adam Goodhue on drums. However, no amps were used, making this a truly acoustic set.
