Gary Lucas & Peter Willems – A Tribute to Jeff Buckley
Guitar hero Gary Lucas from New York, previously with Captain Beefheart and Jeff Buckley, meets the Dutch double bass talent Peter Willems in the Bimhuis. Together they form a duo that digs deep into blues-related songs and bridges the gap between jazz, rock and Americana.
Double Dare Volume 1&2
They released the album 'Double Dare Volume 1&2' together on ZenneZ Records. Now they pay tribute to Gary's legendary friends and musical partners, the late Jeff Buckley and Captain Beefheart. Expect rare videos and fascinating stories.
Singer, guitarist and (film) composer Gary Lucas (1952) started his career in Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band, and he recorded over fifty albums in various genres. He received several Lifetime Achievement Awards for his songwriting in collaboration with Jeff Buckley—he co-composed Jeff’s anthems ‘Grace’ and ‘Mojo Pin’.
Peter Willems (1999) recently graduated with honours from the Maastricht Conservatory, with a shared bachelor’s degree in vocals and double bass. He has won important jazz awards and has performed at festivals such as North Sea Jazz and So What’s Next?
