It was a smokefilled and ginsoaked night at the baddest honkytonk in town, when our two protagonists discovered their common love for one of the most undererrated artists in the world. Huddie Ledbetter, better known as Leadbelly!
So plans were made, strings got strung, and old songs were mourned and hollered. They climbed on the shoulders of this giant to pay dues to the man and carry his mighty legacy into the 21st century.
As well respected artists in their own right, Timo Gross and Adax Dörsam handle these songs with care. With respect, but their own gut and head, these two strong characters interpret the heritage of Leadbelly. Gross intense voice and earthy guitar complement perfectly with Dörsams unusual and fancy guitarstyles.
Here we are: talking to Huddie Ledbetter now!
