Fat Harry (Harold van Dorth) picked up the guitar at the age of 12 when he heard Willie Dixon’s “Twenty Nine Ways” performed bij John Littlejohn on the radio. From there on his love for American roots music started to develop and also his guitar and vocal styles.

Harry can still enjoy the deep Mississippi or Chicago blues sound, but can go wild also on New Orleans and Bay Area Funk, Southern Soul and gospel.
In his opinion, the best musician is the best listener, and playing from the heart is more important than technique or just copying the notes of your heroes. Okay, Albert King is always around in his solo’s, but Harry believes he’s haunted by the late great Albert….

Harry is fortunate that he learned from the best players out of American blues hot spots ; did shows with Joe Louis Walker, Preston Shannon from Memphis, Super Chikan from Clarksdale,Mississippi (together with the Dynaflow) and Lurrie Bell from Chicago. But the most he learned from bass player extraordinary Henry Oden from California. And that’s a lesson in life, and how that should reflect in your playing.
