My good mate Mr Bennett has just announced some upcoming gigs for November through to January in Bristol and Brighton. If you’re a fan of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Dylan, Lou Reed or JJ Cale I reckon Mr B will be right up yer alley. Dutch magazine “OOR” probably sum up the nation’s favourite displaced Canadian best with their concise review: “Wow!”
Regular listeners at thebluemask.com will know I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mr B on many occasions (some of which you can find in my shop – there’s a free mp3 download in there too) and hopefully we’ll be having some new tracks up for yer listening pleasure real soon.
For those unfamiliar with Mr Bennett’s dulcet tones, check out this collection of short preview clips below or follow the links to Mr B’s online worlds where you can get the full skinny, albums, mugs with his face on, faces with his mug on etc.
If you’re in the Bristol or Brighton areas on these dates, I’d highly recommend checking out a slice of the Bennett pie. Mr B never fails to produce the goods. I’m definitely going to be there for a helping at the Brighton date. Tell him TBM sent you and get a free strange look:
