Raphael Callaghan got a standing ovation for his harmonica playing with US star Bonnie Raitt in his hometown of Liverpool, and he’s also played with other greats like Alexis Korner, Eric Bibb and Jo Ann Kelly. Now he launches his new CD, Blue Lies, at the Green Note. Stand back and light the blues touchpaper for a night of vocal wizardry, stellar slide guitar and compulsive grooves. Maverick open tunings underpin original lyrics that can hit like a hammer or move you to tears.
