The Blues Man

The Blues Man

The annual rock festival at the park in Tungelsta took place on Saturday. The weather was fantastic. Nearly 30C. No one complained about that. Well, almost no one. This is Steve Future. He is a blues musician. I first saw him play back in 1985. A quarter of a century later he is still going strong. After his gig I walked over for a chat and a photo. Steve did have some complains about the weather. It was a bit too warm for his liking. And perhaps a little early in the day for a blues man to perform in the early afternoon. Stefan, which is his real name, loves the harmonica, his favorite musicians include Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan. More photos from this event to come.

I had a thought recently, when listening to ABBA on the radio, followed by Roxette: Is there smth special in music education in Sweden which gives so remarkable results?
Very blues looking gentleman.

Steffe, thanks for visiting Hartford Daily Photo. I could comment on your fascinating photos just about every day. Ulf Samuelsson was a big favorite in Hartford. He was big and strong, scored occasionally, and loved to hit opponents.
