Roadside Preaching sees Pete Alderton collaborating with musicians he met while touring Germany’s blues bars – true originals, to whom the blues is not just a musical style, but a way of life.
It has made Roadside Preaching, mastered by Hans-Jörg Mauksch at Pauler Acoustics, his most authentic and intense album so far. An essential part of its appeal stems from the tightness of his backing band, which has cut its teeth through an endless string of gigs, performing both at renowned jazz spaces and small pubs.
Eric Clapton once said: “From time to time, you need to revisit the blues to recharge”. Pete Alderton has never left its side.
