Video of Kenny Wilson’s trip to New York, November 2019 with music by “La Reverie”

Here is a video I have just made of my trip to New York last November when I saw Bob Dylan live at the Beacon Theatre. It was a great gig and he was really on form and sang quite a few rarities.

This video is the first I have made using Photoshop Elements and I am pleased with the result. Expect more! The music is from 2017 by a Gypsy Jazz group called “La Reverie”, no longer active. I played accordion with them. The tune is a Django Reinhardt composition called “Swing Gitane”. Recorded by Rick Wilson at his Leicestershire studio.

Kenny Wilson and Mick Pini live studio recordings from Germany, January 2020

Here are some studio recordings of my songs with me and Mick Pini recorded in Ichenhausen, Germany recently. Recorded at the lb-studio (Tonstudio) by ace engineer Tobias.

“Sugar Man” and “Ever Reaching Out For You” are songs I wrote in the mid 70s when I played in a duo with Mick. We haven’t played them together since then but it all came back to us. A real nostalgic moment. I think the songs still stand up and I am so glad I have returned them to my repertoire. Thanks to Mick and Tobias for all their help. Below is a video of our performance of “Sugar Man” at a gig in Birkenried.

Son House: The Lost King Of The Delta Blues

This is from a great blog I follow called 1960s:Days of Rage. I actually met Son House in 1967 at the De Montfort Hall, Leicester. I was 16. He was an amazing character who could still sing and play wonderfully!

I was at an open mic in Leicester last night and a friend of mine, Rhett Barrow, sang a Son House song. He did a great job! Then, this morning, I came upon this blog post. Fate has directed me back to an appreciation of Son House and his marvellous recordings!

1960s: Days of Rage


Intense is the one word that describes Son House (21 March 1902 – 19 October 1988)and his version of the blues. He was a major influence on Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson, like both of them, when Son sang the blues you had to believe him. Born Eddie James House Jr, his father played in the family brass band. House grew up on a plantation near Clarksdale. He was preaching in church by the time he was 15, as well as working a variety of jobs. He taught himself to play the guitar around 1923 and was soon playing house rent parties and local picnics. In 1928 he served time in the infamous Parchman Farm prison after which he worked with Charley Patton playing levee camps and country dances around Clarksdale, Mississippi. It was through Patton that Son House recorded for the first time. This was for Paramount Records…

I wrote this song a little while ago as part of the Vitallion III project with Mick Smith and Steve Cartwright. It has received a lot of interest from many of Muggy’s descendants and admirers so I have decided to put it on the internet so people can easily access it. Thanks to you all for the interest, it is very encouraging! It is a great feeling when your work has made a positive impact on others.
