JB's welcomes 'Simon Currie' to Limetree Festival in 2012



It was as a young teenager in Dundee that Simon first came across a steel guitar which was gracing the cover of the Dire Straits album ‘Brother in Arms’. Subsequently his fascination with the sound of this instrument lead him on a journey of musical discovery which took him back to the blues masters of Son House, Robert Johnson & Lightnin’ Hopkins. It was the honesty, simplicity and emotion in the voice, songs and guitar of the music of this genre that struck a chord with Simon – how so much could be achieved with so little. Following hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Beyond Desolate’, Simon Currie, with his distinctive contemporary alternative blues act ‘Man Gone Missing’, has written and recorded the follow-up album entitled ‘Burn You.’

The new album offers another diverse and fantastic collection of material and certainly marks a step forward in both the sound and writing from ‘Beyond Desolate.’ At the same time it will also please fans of the debut album as Simon continues in this collection to maintain those trademark haunting melodies and that seemingly effortless, yet highly complex guitar style.


JB's would like to thank all the bands and individual artists for their participation in the 2011 festival, bringing along not only their amazing talents but also an energetic enthusiasm for the Limetree spirit of family fun and high quality music. Cheers again to everyone involved this year. Peace and love x
