A solo acoustic roots-blues-americana album from Hans Theesink. After 7,000 concerts, two dozen albums and more than 40 years 'on the road', Hans is ready with a new solo album.
In 'WISHING WELL' Theessink digs deep into the treasure of American homespun music, and comes up with some wonderful new interpretations of traditional songs, together with strong original compositions and personal favorites by Bob Dylan, Brownie McGhee and Townes van Zandt.
He is a master when it comes to making songs his own: even the familiar classics end up sounding like typical Theessink-music. With his warm baritone and exquisite work on a variety of stringed instruments, Hans creates a laidback hypnotic groove and draws his audience into a rare and intimate listening experience.
In Hans' own words....
"I love roots music of any sort, and I'm especially taken and touched by the rich sounds that originated in the southern US. The folk-, roots- and blues-music from this part of the world has been a source of inspiration for me since I first picked up the guitar some fifty years ago. In 'Wishing Well', you will find a selection of old and new songs from these traditions and songs that I've written myself inspired by these musical roots as well as life on the road as a travelling troubadour. 'Wishing Well' is basically a solo album, but I had a little help from my musical friends and I also brought a whole lot of instruments to the studio to play myself".
