Roger McGuinn played the Peer Rhythm And Blues Festival in Belgium yesterday (July 19, 2009).
The artists were (in no particular appearing order): Jeff Beck, Dereck Trucks, John Mayall, South Side Johnny, Roger McCuinn, Steve Winwood, Joe Bonamassa, Rod Piazza, Liz Haley & The Zydekatsflyers, Lightnin' Guy & the Mighty Gators, Boo Boo Davis...
We couldn't make it, but here's what a visitor from the Netherlands has to say:
Roger McGuinn was to me the highlight of the festival. This very sympathetic man brought us back to the 60s, with his typical jangling 12-string guitar sound and his soft high-pitched voice. The Byrds, but also a brilliant solo carreer. Turn Turn Turn, Mr Tambourine Man, You Ain't Going Nowhere, Pretty Boyd Floyd, Chesnut Mare and all those other fantastic songs. Seeing and hearing this man only was worth the trip to Peer.
