Singer/guitarist Erja Lyytinen--hailed “the Finnish slide goddess” by The Blues Magazine—comes to Neimënster this Friday.
After a career spanning some 15 years, Erja Lyytinen (photo Adamkennedy1979/Creative Commons) has become a bona fide star in her homeland and a celebrated fixture on the international music scene. In that time, she has recorded eleven studio albums and picked up numerous awards. She feels equally at home playing traditional and modern blues but has never been afraid to incorporate styles like jazz, pop and soul into her songwriting. Her latest album, “Another World”, was a self-produced effort that involved a bunch of her friends and colleagues playing their part, including slide guitar wizard Sonny Landreth and former Michael Jackson guitarist Jennifer Batten.
