HARRY HORNSEY & ALFIE BERNARDI
This blog would run to many pages if it were to recount all the times spent at dreary pub gigs listening to try-hard musicians plodding robotically through their predictable setlists of blues numbers.
So chancing upon this dapper duo in a backstreet Brighton venue not unconnected with previous bad experiences was an unexpected delight. With superb harp player Alfie Bernardi at his side here was the extrovert HARRY HORNSEY breathing new life into old songs with wit and panache. His vivid vocals and dazzling guitar playing were showcased in an unusually broad repertoire ranging from prewar blues, ragtime and delta classics to country and early rock’n’roll.
