Eddie Kirkland - Time Out Pub, Rockland, Maine July 19th, 2010

Eddie Kirkland and his band played a couple of gigs recently in Maine. We caught them at the Time Out Pub in Rockland on July 19th.

Eddie will turn 87 soon!

Man, these guys could sure lay down a groove! No surprise there, as Kirkland worked with another bluesman noted for his deep grooves, starting some 60+ years ago in Detroit (John Lee Hooker). I'd say that deep groove is as intrinsic to them as breathing is to most of the rest of us.

It was an extreme pleasure to finally get to see and hear Eddie Kirkland perform.
