A Dutch bluesman? A lot of blues fans will scratch their heads over that one. But with bona fide American R&B artists like saxophonist Maceo Parker and vocalists Bobby King and Terry Evans lending their talents, as well as members of The Band, it's clear Theessink's got the talent to attract folks with a firm grounding in the blues.
He's a first-rate guitarist and a distinctive singer with a deep baritone voice. His picking on steel guitar and mandolin evokes memories of early Delta players without sounding dated; his songs are firmly within the blues, yet equally accessible.
