Bandwidth Presents: Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir
Calgary's finest join Mississippian William Elliott Whitmore for a special performance from this year's Open House Festival
In the dying days of summer, Belfast uncorked the last of that wine bottle and got down and dirty for the annual Open House Festival, a glut of blues so rootsy you’d need a shovel to dig it out.
Five days of chilli and banjos took its toll, but not before Bandwidth got a chance to crawl backstage and down Jameson with Calgary’s finest The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir where we also found, skulking away in a corner, a true dixie Mississippian William Elliott Whitmore.
The rest of it is all a little bit hazy. Fortunately I’d hit the record button at some point. I believe someone suggested the acoustics would sound best inside a tiny plastic shower cubicle. Maybe it's the effect of having been on tour for three months. Either way, it was later concluded to be 'second best thing that’s ever been done in a bathroom', and that's the way it'll stay forever.
