Ariel Posen joins us to talk about his 2019 travel board, the signature Hudson Broadcast-AP overdrive pedal and his incredible metal-body Mulecaster. He also jams with the That Pedal Show band!
Ariel is a wonderful musician who we first met in 2016. He has a long CV of band, touring and session playing, including The Brothers Landreth. He has recently embarked on a solo career, releasing the album ‘How Long’ in 2019, following up with live dates across Europe and North America.
We are delighted to welcome him to Schwangri-La to shoot the breeze about life, guitars and related matters arising… not least his new Hudson Broadcast-AP pedal, before some epic jammage with Doug Mussard (drums) and Paddy Blight (bass) – otherwise known as That Pedal Show Band… when they don’t have a better gig - ha!
Ariel is playing the Two-Rock throughout, Mick and Dan play the Victory at the end.
