Special Kind of Trouble
Freelance musicians for a combined 25 years, Andrew Ogburn & Barnaby Gold have been performing together since 1998. Their work together includes supporting Betty Harris in 2006, supporting Eddie Bo in 2007, backing Kerri Simpson, and supporting Matt Walker & Ashley Davies. Their repertoire includes instrumental and vocal music spanning the entire history of southern American rhythm and blues, gospel, and funk. Lemonade and Solid are truly dedicated performers in the under-played New Orleans genre in Australia. You will hear them play the best-known tunes of Professor Longhair, Dr. John, James Booker, plus other powerful songs from the Gospel, Blues, and R & B traditions. Andrew (Big Boy Lemonade) will amaze you with his piano wizardry, while Barnaby (Solid Gold) creates a rhythmic riot! Winners of the 2005 PBS Radio Band Prize, the pair decided not just to make a duo album, but invite some of Australia's best Blues artists to perform with them. Their debut CD features vocalists Ian Collard, Suzannah Espie, and Kerri Simpson, and saxophonists Paul Williamson and Bruce Sandell. This album is a collection of stunning, roots-driven performances.
