Payin' Dues: Thorbjørn Risager
The former teacher from Copenhagen with a powerhouse vocal and a love of SRV.
2014's Too Many Roads introduced Denmark’s Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado’s soulful blues sound. This year sees them join the rich canon of acts who have contributed to the Ruf label’s Songs From The Road CD and DVD series. “We were proud to be a part of it, and to be in such great company as Luther Allison, Canned Heat and Royal Southern Brotherhood,” Risager says. “It was a real luxury to play with a full horn section and have the Tornadettes on backing vocals.”
