Eslovs Blues Festival 2004

By Published: January 15, 2005

The artist up was he Swedish blues guitar legend Rolf "Roffe" Wikstrom and his Blue Hammer. With six men to back him he made a whole lot of sound. Especially on his more moody songs it worked. Wikstrom got a great deal of soul and vibrato in his hands but it would have been nice to hear a little bit more variation. But his Swedish lyrics and reconcilable guitar sound is and will probably always something you can't stand still to.

It was with a sad feeling I finally noticed how fast two days could disappear. Great music, great people and a friendly warm felling of generosity made my impression of this years blues festival. An extra applauds to the people behind the stage that were real friendly and always helped when something was unclear.
