HAT FITZ AND CARA ROBINSON - Beauty 'n the Beast (2010)
In combining musical forces, Hat Fitz, Queensland's answer to Charley Patton and Belfast Singer/drummer/flutist Cara Robinson recreate the musical mix that created the Delta Blues. They met when Hat was touring Ireland and are now married. 'Beauty and the Beast,' their first album, is an unlikely but successful mix of Irish, Folk and country blues, with pleasingly original versions of Blind Willi Johnson's 'Nobody's Fault but Mine' and Blind Willie McTell's 'Delilah.' Jim Conway plays some great harmonica on a couple of tracks.
Take one heaped teaspoon of Seasick Steve, a liberal helping of Catfish Keith, a pinch of Joni Mitchell. Finish well with a dusting of Blind Willie McTell and put into a studio at gas mark 5. Bake for one week. What you get is an eclectic pie with so many flavours that perhaps shouldn't work together but just do! Both artists have vast experience behind them and have been able to gently influence each other without taking control. The variety of this recording is refreshing and the excitement comes from a sense that this is just the start of what is destined to be a large brood of musical offspring. The blending of pre war hill country and delta blues with early Australian folk and traditional Celtic styles has produced a truly unique sound and has enhanced their reputation as one of the world's most interesting and musically appealing combinations.
