Blues with a bluster: Hassan Peter Brown talks about his new album


The music scene here is familiar with Hassan Peter Brown’s folky travails, but this time around, he dips his hand deep into American backwaters on his latest solo album.

Not many people get to say they went to school and were friends with Pink Floyd’s drummer, Nick Mason. Likewise, few will be in a position to say that British folk legend Davy Graham tried to buy a copy of his own duet record with Shirley Collins Folk Roots, New Routes from them. And it’ll be near impossible to meet someone here who watched the late great guitarist Paul Kossoff live before he etched his name in the rock pantheon as the axe grinder for Free.
