Yes, I'm off to Norway again and what a privilege it is to be asked to dee-jay in the company of Little Willie Littlefield and Big Moe & Jolly Jumper.

Willie first recorded sixty years ago back in 1952 and was the composer and original recording artist of "Kansas City" - known as "K. C. Loving" when Willie cut the disc. Shortly after it was a local hit, Leiber & Stoller bought the rights from Willie and, as they say, the rest is history.

I was with Willie at the most recent "Blues In Hell" Festival and was the M.C. at Burnley about 5 years ago when Willie was one of the main attractions so it will be great to hook up with him again and hear some of his stories.

Jolly Jumper and Big Moe Celebrate 20 Years Together

27th and 28th December 2011

The proposed appearance of Little Willie Littlefield unfortunately didn't happen due to quite a serious illness - along with lots of others I hope he's soon back on the circuit.

He was replaced by the irrepressible Angela Brown who was accompanied by the young but accomplished pianist Daniel T. Rossing.

Both nights followed the same format - I spun my 45's for 1 hours then Angela Brown did about 1 hours, another hour of records then Jolly Jumper and Big Moe with the Jimbo Jumbo Band played for 1 house till midnight, I then finished the night off closing at 1am.

This was an unforgettable experience. The venue, the atmosphere and the artists were of top quality.

The hospitality and the warmth of the people in Stienkjer makes me want to return A.S.A.P.
