Bernard, Medeski, Moore and Hess
Earlier this year, guitarist Will Bernard entered a Pennsylvania recording studio with three notable players. Bernard was joined by John Medeski, Stanton Moore and Andy Hess for these sessions at Maggie’s Farm in Buck’s County, PA. The resulting project is set for a September 30 release on Palmetto Records. Blue Plate Special collects twelve tracks drawn from the Maggie’s Farm sessions, which were produced by guitarist Matt Balitsaris. It doesn’t appear that the four musicians who appear on Blue Plate Special will gig together in the immediate future, although Bernard will support the release with a number of October dates, featuring his current touring band, starting on October 1 at the Chicago House of Blues.
