One With The Blues @ Wilkes Head
Oct 5 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
One With The Blues @ Wilkes Head | England | United Kingdom

One with the blues: a Westhoek hero with a voice and a lot of skills on guitar. Blues, sincerely brought with great respect for the great masters of the past!

After walking hard metal and solid hard rock paths, Miguel Verschaeve found the roots back at the age of sixteen: back to basics!

He renamed himself “One with the blues” and first took to the streets with electric, then with acoustic guitar. The result is pure sincerity, a lot of passion and a lot of groove.

Miguel quickly sought out the greats of the Delta blues and brought full coverage of covers from Rory Gallagher , Mississippi John Hurt , Blind Boy Fuller , Eric Sardinas , Jeff Healy and Townes Van Zandt . One with the Blues also writes his own songs, which deal thematically with the fight of survival and his own psychological vulnerability.

His style? Fingerpicking and country blues, recently supplemented with a slide guitar on a resonator. His dream? Creating brand awareness within the blues circuit to share his passion with the general public. Our goal? Help him get started by offering One with the blues a place on our pleasant stage.
