Suncoast Blues Society presents blues/rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Alastair Greene in Side Door.
Alastair Greene’s musical journey has been anything but traditional. His combination of Blues, Southern Rock, and Jam Band sensibilities has been thrilling audiences for nearly two decades. With recent performances at the Chicago Blues Festival and the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas as well as recent tours filling in on guitar with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas, and many guest appearances with such luminaries as Eric Burdon, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Savoy Brown, John Nemeth, and Debbie Davies, it’s crystal clear…Alastair Greene’s star is on the rise.
Greene recently plunged headfirst into a full-time solo career, stepping down after 7 years touring the world as the guitarist for Rock legend, Alan Parsons. He is philosophical about his time playing with Parsons, saying, “I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity Alan gave me to handle guitar and vocal duties in his band. It was an honor to play the music created by the Alan Parsons Project to Alan’s fans around the world. After 8 years, the time has come for me to truly pursue my own musical dream.”
Greene’s mastery of traditional blues tunings, slide, string bending, and grooves are as much a part of the foundation as the hard-driving, rocking energy. As numerous greats have shown, blues and rock don’t always have to be “either/or.” Blues has always reflected the other music of its time. Happily for Greene’s audiences, he is a master of rocking blues – or is it the other way around?
