Seasick Steve Opens UK Tour With KT Tunstall As Guest

Seasick Steve began his UK tour with a sold-out performance at the Astoria in London last night(January 25th).

Fans of the American bluesman were treated to special collaborations, including an appearance from KT Tunstall.

Taking to the stage at 9pm, Seasick Steve took up his usual solo role, with just a guitar and a stomped beat on his homemade ‘Mississippi Drum Machine’ providing backing to his howled vocals.

But soon he introduced his special guest. “I’ve always wanted to have me a girl to sing with, and I saw this girl on Jools Holland, on YouTube,” he said. “I thought ‘I wanna sing with that girl,’ but I didn’t think she’d wanna sing with me. Turns out she did!”

Tunstall joined him on guitar and vocals on the well-received track ‘Happy Man’, before returning later in the set to play flute.

Seasick Steve’s grandson and a member of his old band The Level Devils joined him onstage regularly, playing tambourine and drums.

There was also time for Steve to cheekily apologise to The Enemy, whose chairs he had stolen for the show.

Seasick Steve’s tour continues at Birmingham Academy tomorrow night (January 26th).
