For the first time in Boston, a concert with one of the most popular Bulgarian blues and rock musicians:
Vasko the Patch - vocal, acoustic guitar and harmonica
A drummer, a harp player, a singer, a songwriter, always expressive and freedom-loving, both topical and non-conformist, a musician living with his people's problems and with his country's developments... It is not a coincidence that blues is the 'coat' that wraps around his feelings, thoughts and talent. It is the style that suits his spirit and perceptions. Poduene Blues Band and Vasko the Patch charge everybody around with disobedience, sadness and optimism. His singing and his improvisations give strenght to people's faith, they admire him and trust him. Vasko and his rebelious blues - they are so needed and welcome. Nobody else has ever brought so many street singers and musicians to the Balkanton recording studios - giving the sound engineer headache, but bringing the street's spirit to the professional recording...
-Vasko Stefanov, sound engineer
"If there was a 'Grammy' for a bluesman who created songs awakening the masses, Vasko the Patch would carry that award with honor!"
-Philip Dimitrov, ex-prime minister ex-ambassador to the USA
