Northern Life: ‘One-man band’ set to play The Townehouse

“One-man band” Steve Hill is set to make a stop at The Townehouse Oct. 16 as part of a tour of Canada in support of his latest album, “Solo Recordings Volume 2.”

“When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits,” a press release said.

“Throughout his lengthy and intense shows, Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, with his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and – with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar – any other percussion within reach.

“With roots in blues, rock and a little bit of country, Hill performs his original songs, blues classics and quite often raucous renditions of Jimi Hendrix tunes.

For the past 20 years Hill has been touring and recording and has shared the stage with the likes of Ray Charles, BB King, ZZ Top, Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin and Jeff Beck.

The show will start at 8 p.m. with Lori and Jessie from the Sulfer City Blues Band followed by an intimate solo performance by Hill.

Tickets to the event cost $15 at the door.
