Country & Eastern Newsletter August 31, 2018

Beches Brew is back in Gothenburg

Last spring we played every Saturday afternoon at Studio HPKSM. This fall we will play the first Saturday each month, that is Sept 1, Oct 6, Nov 3 and December 1. At 4 p.m. We are Thomas Gustafsson, Sir Thomas Jäderlund, Göran Klinghagen, Stefan Bellnäs, Bengt Berger. Welcome, its fun.

GOTHENBURG and PODUNK - 2 albums November 3

The release will take place at our gig at Studio HPKSM as the albums feature Beches Brew and Stefan Bellnäs. We recorded the album GOTHENBURG after our long stint at HPKSM. On a couple of tracks we have Staffan Svensson and Viktor Reuter joining us.

Our bass player Stefan Bellnäs is one of the busiest musicians around, everybody wants to play with him as he plays any kind of music as if his life depends on it. Stefan has a mind of his own and this is the first time he gets to express that so you can expect something out of the ordinary on his album PODUNK. He will play some of his music in the club with a great assembly of musicians: Anders Kjellberg, Lisen Rylander, Tommy Kotter, and Staffan Svensson at the release.

Our Dhrupad releases have received great attention

Here is a very thorough background to Dhrupad, the eldest form of classical Hindustani music and great reviews of our recent releases with the Dagars by prolific music writer Raul da Gama, Dagar Dynasty: The Mysticism of Dagar "Vani" Dhrupad 

As I write  this newsletter on my birthday....

I will swallow my embarrassment, indulge a bit and link to Raul da Gama's brand new portrait on me and my music, Bengt Berger: Percussion - Communion.
