On the Ciaran Dorris Sunday Session this week is his guest castaway Bristol-based singer-songwriter and loyal Celtic Music Radio listener Paul Butler who recently released his latest album ‘Days Will Come’
Butler usually plays solo folk/acoustic shot through with the Blues. He has played and recorded with B.B.King, Lightnin’Slim, Eddie Guitar Burns and Taj Mahal. However, as an electric blues guitarist, his earlier musical life represents an odyssey though the British Blues Boom years.
Paul Butler’s recording career began in 1964, when his first band, The Turnkeys, provided the “beat group music” for a Jim O’Connolly film ”The little ones” (released
Paul Butler retired from the music business in 1982.
In 2009 he bought himself a new acoustic guitar, and by 2010, some of his home recordings were being regularly played on independent radio stations, one even topping a listener popularity chart on four occasions.
In 2010, some of these tracks were released in downloadable format as “21C Blue –the EP”. However, it wasn’t until July 2012 that the planned studio recording could begin. “Days will come” is the end result.
Paul will be playing tracks from this album on Ciaran’s programme on Sunday.
