Giessbach Sessions with Philipp Fankhauser
We are hugely excited to welcome Philipp Fankhauser here at the Giessbach Sessions.
An unmissable event for 2022!Philipp Fankhauser strikes new notes!
HEEBIE JEEBIES TOUR 2022/2023The tour for the new album starts on 16 December2022.The quintet has become a sextet and the fully electric sound is somewhat more moderate. After all, "Man" is no longer 20!You could always expect one or two surprises from Philipp Fankhauser. On his last album, "Let Life Flow", there was a dialect song by Hanery Amman and an Italian homage to the great cantautore Lucio Dalla. Soul Blues Country Rock & Roll Pop Love Songs. On his seventeenth album "Heebie Jeebies", which can best be translated as "goose bumps", he now presents thirteen songs by his fatherly friend and mentor, the Texan singer and guitarist Johnny Copeland, who died in 1997. That wouldn't be very surprising in itself, because Copeland's songs have always been present on practically all of Fankhauser's albums and have accompanied him his whole blues life. But now Philipp goes way back to the sixties, to a time when the blues was displaced by the hip and modern sound of soul. A time when Philipp was born in 1964 in Thun on Lake Thun. Everything new? Not really. But happier, more danceable, with a cool groove and positive vibes. Is that still blues? Yes, it is - but hipper and somehow quite contemporary. Every single song on the album is a pearl, played by the best musicians who play the blues and related music in Switzerland and beyond.
