Connor Filicko Performs Blues at Milton Theater

Connor Filicko Performs Blues On The Broadkill at Milton Theater


On Saturday, August 3, 2014, 17 year old Connor Filicko preformed "Blues on the Broadkill" to a capacity crowd in the cabaret lounge of the Milton Theater. The Broadkill River ebbs and flows directly behind the theater. Milton, DE was once a clipper ship building village in the late 17 and early 1800's. The Broadkill runs into the Delaware Bay and the Bay empties into the Atlantic Ocean.


For two hours, Connor proved to be a master of the situation. Throughout the evening the crowd was hanging on his every word as they anxiously waited for his next note to turn into another song. Connor performed blues standards, however, each song had his own unique signature and style. Sonny Boy Willamson's, Good Morning Little School Girl was done with an immoral fixity of purpose. His artful handling of his harp and Connor's strong deep-rooted vocals showed a maturity way beyond his years.

Connor played Muddy Water's, Rolling and a Tumbling on his acoustic slide guitar. Throughout his young career Connor was known as only a harp player and vocalist. His guitar skills forged a new link in his chain of progress toward his mastery of the blues.

His audience was treated to Willie Dixon's, Little Red Rooster as Connor played a cigar box guitar with the rare combination of audacity and calculation which assures success.

In addition to the covers, one of the most significant features of the evening was Connor's song writing. His skills shows he is capable of the ability to play a significant role in blues music.

This writer sees Connor as the torch bearer for many years to come.

JDM Ananta Instrumental track for The Traditional Mess Album

JDM Ananta Instrumental track for The Traditional Mess Album

Another instrumental track completed to be added to The Traditional Mess album. This track entitled Ananta . The name derives from a Sanskrit word meaning "without end" or "infinite" one of the names of Vishnu. This is my first track to feature my new Brook Tamar custom acoustic guitar. I hope that you like it. It has a unique sound, way different from my original Brook Tavy guitar. I am able to introduce a wider range of percussion by using the custom scratch plate that is incorporated on the guitar.


Hear the track in the player below or go the the album player here.

Brook Guitar Tavy Fan Fret in Blender Cycles

Brook Guitar Tavy Fan Fret in Blender Cycles

Here is my second attempt at modelling a guitar in Blender cycles. This one is my Brook Custom fan Fretted Tavy. The first guitar that I had made for me by Brook guitars.
It was a lot quicker for me this time around because the guitar is mainly symetrical in shape as opposed to the first guitar that I modelled. I am getting to grips with the smoothing tecniques. The image here shows the guitar rendered with a curtain draped background that I was able to achieve using the cloth simulation in Cycles render engine.

The next two images show the similar setup as the first image but with a different colour added to the cutain background.
