EXPLOSIVE DOUBLE BILL OF BLUES ROCK
The Stevie Nimmo Trio
As one half of Scotland's highly respected 'Nimmo Brothers', Stevie Nimmo has been a well known and respected figure throughout the blues and roots world for over 15 years.
Now, having toured extensively with the critically acclaimed blues rock outfit over the last few years, as well as taking to the road in a stripped back, acoustic format to continue promotion of his debut solo project 'The Wynds of Life', Stevie is now setting out on a new adventure in a full-on, electric, no-holds-barred trio format.
Stevie says that, although the acoustic project is extremely satisfying and allows him to showcase his voice and song writing talents in the perfect environment, sometimes you just want to break out the Les Paul, crank up the old orange amp and make some noise!
Which is exactly what he plans to do.
The writing process is already underway and a new album is being planned for late 2015.
He is enjoying making music now as much as at any point throughout his 20 years in the business and is fully relishing the fresh challenge of a brand new project.
Don't miss this chance to catch an artist at the top of his game doing what he does best standing on stage playing his own music in his own passionate, inimitable fashion.
You will not be disappointed!
What they say:
'Man that guy can sing!'
David Grissom (storyville)
'Stevie's voice is at times gritty, other times emotional but all times perfection!'
'Stevie possesses a great depth to his work. He has come through with an album befitting those lending support and that pretty much says it all.'
Displaying a burning passion to get down and dirty, he becomes neck deep in the swampy Louisiana side of things when he comes up with a future blues steeped rock gem as 'Long Road To Heaven'.. Muscle Shoals at its peak would be proud of having recorded this track!'
The Ben Poole Band
Inspired by the Blues, infused with a hard hitting, in-yer-face rock approach and topped-off by virtuoso musicianship, Ben Poole is being talked of as the new up-and-coming UK Blues guitarist; one of the finest to have emerged in Europe for years. Having already played with, and received critical acclaim from some of his heroes; legendary blues artists including Jeff Beck, Gary Moore and John Mayall, at just 23 years of age it appears that there is no stopping this young and incredibly gifted musician. His latest recordings reinforce this and make it blatantly clear that Ben is destined for a great future on the European Blues/Rock scene.
A Really great player! -Gary Moore
Very good. A really fresh sound and style! -Paul Jones (BBC Radio 2)
Unbelievable! It's very refreshing to hear someone in today's time who reminds me of the guys who inspired me when I was young. He'll be a household name someday for sureAmazing! -Richie Kotzen
Ben really brings the fire with his licks. He's got neck-snapping vibrato where he catches a bunch of strings at once and grinds the shit out of them. By the way he hits the guitar, we can only assume it's been saying rude things about his mother! Ben impressed with his tone, touch and stage presence. Ben Poole: the next Joe Bonamassa? -'Total Guitar' magazine
A fleet fingered and talented newcomer to the British blues scene. His playing may be ferocious but he rarely sacrifices precision for it. His phrasing belies his years. Definitely one to watch. -'Guitarist' Magazine
