By now you have certainly heard of the style of music that is known as the Blues….the style that is also called “The music of the devil.” That’s okay, it is time to say goodbye to those definitions, because when General Gypsy Carns plays the blues, it is more Christian than the Pope….if you love the sound of the slide guitar at it’s roots, you will appreciate the music of The General. In effect, armed not only with a Gibson double-neck, this soldier of Christ plays a OAI Dobro, with a harmonica…. and stompbox.. in other words The General comes “ready for battle”.
GGC is a curiosity of a completely different type. This primitive blues artist’ music is not what one expects at first look, but his style makes the detour well worthwhile.
