Tribute to Toots Thielemans
Thursday 25th April 2019 9pm
Number 39 is proud to present our old friend from Baked A La Ska, Robin Sunflower.
Robin started playing the Harmonica in the 80's and joined the legendary blues band Victor Brox and the Blues Train. After hearing the amazing playing of Toots Thielemans Robin made the transition to the button-activated sliding bar Chromatic Harmonica. Robin has played with some well known artists including John Heliwell (Supertramp), Suns of Arqa and Kirsty Almeida. He is now working on a number projects soon to come to fruition which range from Spaghetti Western music to Trance.
Robin's annual tour to celebrate the birthday and music of Belgium's Toots Thielemans will be particularly poignant this year since this great jazz musician passed away in August 2016. Had he survived Toots would have been celebrating his 96th birthday this coming Saturday (29th April).
You can learn more at the Robin Sunflower Website which has plenty of videos to give you a preview.
