Outstanding Instrumental Album
2000 Canadian Prairie Music Awards
Caffeinated Coffee was originally conceived of simply as a demo to send out to folk clubs in search of engagements. Since then the award-winning recording has received praise from guitar afficiandos around the world.
The album features 7 original compositions by Bob Evans, along with his arrangements of tunes by Lennon and McCartney, Ray Bell and Joel Fafard, and his cover of two fingerstyle guitar classics: Leo Kottke’s Bean Time and Tom Rush’s Rockport Sunday.
“Evans has a strong sense of melody in his playing, and he can sketch a story with a tune, . . . This is a well-crafted solo guitar release that leaves you wanting to hear more”

“… a veritable blooming, a wellspring of artistry and riveting fingerstyle conceptions.”
