Trudy Lynn and Steve Krase Set Euro Tour Dates in May and June
HOUSTON, TX – Connor Ray Music artists Trudy Lynn and Steve Krase announce a series of European dates that will take the blues singer and harmonica player to Germany, France, Spain and Norway on a two-week tour during May and June. Lynn and Krase will perform at a combination of outdoor festivals, concert halls and showcase venues that will give blues fans a chance to hear the two artists up close and personal. They’ll be performing songs from Lynn’s current CD, I’ll Sing the Blues for You, which helped garner her a Blues Music Award nomination for Best Traditional Blues Female Performer (aka the Koko Taylor Award) as well as Krase’s new album, Should’ve Seen It Coming, which is set for release on April 21. Both artists make special guest appearances on each other’s new albums.
"I’m looking forward to bringing my new music to all my fans over there,” exclaims Trudy Lynn about the upcoming shows. Adds Steve Krase: “Excited to give the European fans a taste of Houston Blues! Watch out!"
On I’ll Sing the Blues for You, Trudy Lynn showcases 10 tracks dripping with blues, soul and R&B, and includes her unique takes on songs from Big Mama Thornton, Lowell Fulsom, Memphis Minnie and Johnny Copeland, among others, as well as the funky original, “Thru Chasin’ You. It is Trudy’s 12th solo album and her third release on the Connor Ray Music label, following up on 2014’s Royal Oaks Blues Café, which hit #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart; and 2015’s Everything Comes with A Price, which spent four months on the Living Blues Radio Chart. Trudy is a six-time Blues Music Award nominee and was inducted into the Houston Music Hall of Fame in 2015.
Blues harmonica ace Steve Krase lays it all out on his new album, Should’ve Seen It Coming, which also includes special guest appearances from guitarists Mark May and Bob Lanza. Krase is well-known as the harmonica player behind Trudy Lynn’s three incredible blues albums on Connor Ray Music. To those in the know, Krase is a powerhouse in his own right as a performer, whose high energy shows are legendary around the Houston scene. Krase has been recognized in multiple categories over the years by the esteemed Houston Press Music Awards in several categories, and most recently -and perhaps most suitably - in 2016 as “Best Player.” Steve was also a semi-finalist at the recent 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
