Bob Long plays a set of solo acoustic blues, opening for......

Free’s Company - the UK’s definitive Free and Bad Company tribute band.

From the thunder of the opening drum beat, the hypnotic bass line and searing guitar riff of “I’ll Be Creepin’” which opens the show, you’ll be transported back in time and treated to the best songs from two of the most influential blues/rock bands in the history of rock’n’roll - Free and Bad Company who were fronted by the incredible Paul Rodgers.

The band formed in March 2013. A chance meeting between ‘Doc’ Martin (guitars) and ‘Woody’ Woodham (drums) was the impetus to make it happen, however Doc and Tom Shrimpton (bass) had already hatched a plan to form a new project some weeks earlier. Andy Vass (vocals) was recruited shortly after the first rehearsal session as the band were instantly impressed with his strong interpretation of “THE VOICE”! Lastly, the band made contact with local guitarist Andy Crowle and following a successful audition he was invited to provide the last piece in the jigsaw.

The band is now in the process of establishing itself as a regular touring outfit around the UK and further afield with a positive reputation building all the time due to the hard work and dedication of all band members.

01590 644861
Price: £10

Friday 14 June will be the first ever Blues Night at Milford-On-Sea, Hampshire. Top of the bill will be Jim Crawford and Ian Briggs, a blues duo of huge talent and experience.            

Jim Crawford is something of an enigma. Originally from Lancashire, he now resides on the North Devon coast. 

A shy and retiring man who readily admits that recording studios fill him with dread and that he’d rather go fishing with his dog for company, has none the less, toured much of Europe and the U.S.A captivating audiences with his intimate folk/blues style. Softly spoken, Jim totally surprises his audience when he breaks into song with, as one reviewer put it " a richness of voice you can only be born with." and for years has been revered among professional musicians as a consummate finger picker and slide guitarist. 

He first came to the attention of a wider audience when invited to record a session for the BBC’s Paul Jones Show. Jim has finished his new solo album "Roots & Originals" which is available along with his previous albums "Blues Boy" and "When the Rains Came". http://www.jimcrawford.org.uk

The combination of Jim on vocals and guitar and Ian Briggs on harmonica, is delightful.

The event will be at The Milford Community Centre, a splendid music venue which stages folk, jazz and many other performances. The show will be hosted by Bob Long; a local bluesman with a liking for early, acoustic blues, ragtime and jug band music www.bobalong.co.uk Bob explains, “ this event will be the first of its kind in Milford. We are going to put on a high quality blues show and see how it goes. If it’s popular, we’ll make Blues Night a regular event.”  In addition to the Crawford/Briggs duo, there will be support from local blues musicians; The Ben Gunn Duo and Bob Long & Keith Miller.

The show starts at 8pm and tickets (£10 in advance and on the door) are bookable at http://www.moscommunitycentre.org.uk Box Office 01590 644861

He combines these styles seamlessly in a combination of infectious rhythm and an authentic acoustic sound.

In 2004 he took first place at the National Slide Guitar Festival in North Carolina The Reverend is known for his true conviction, and powerful delivery

This month's session features Nobody's Business (Dan Ward and Colin Elliot) as Special Guests http://www.reverbnation.com/nbblues  See details of this superb duo below......

All acoustic players welcome to jam or open-mic. Or just come and listen!

 

Nobody’s Business go back to the roots of the blues with songs from those great bluesmen and women whose music has been an inspiration to so many world famous musicians from BB King to the Rolling Stones.

Nobody’s Business will transport you to the cotton fields of rural America, with fine fingerpicking country blues and ragtime guitar from Danny and sensitive harmonica and rhythm guitar from Colin – with the addition of some of their own songs to the mix.

These old blues songs recount enduring tales of hardship, love and loss, passion and jealousy – but often with great humour, and Nobody’s Business convey this with their relaxed musical style and easy rapport with their audience.

Danny’s love of blues music began as a boy listening to his father’s collection of blues and jazz LPs. He had classical guitar lessons from the age of 12 before acquiring a steel string acoustic guitar and starting to teach himself the country blues fingerpicking style which identifies this music. Danny is also a member of Bristol-based 4-piece band Appalachia.

Colin taught himself to play harmonica whilst driving tractors on a farm! A long-time member of blues/rock band Bedrock, Colin has developed an instinctive feel for the emotion of the blues, whether vamping train rhythms on Delta blues songs, or playing high pitched vibrato on more delicate arrangements.

Blues & Booze In The Bury!
Bob Long - 1200 till 1800
The Bury
Odiham, Hampshire RG29 1NB
UK
Price: free

This event, now in its fifth year, combines a blues festival, a real ale festival and a family fun day, raising funds for charities, including The Neurofibromatosis Association (NfA). It is located open-air in The Bury, at the heart of the beautiful old town of Odiham, Hampshire, United Kingdom. The music starts at 12 noon and finishes at 6 pm. Entry is free and there’s plenty of parking. 

As in previous years, the emphasis of this successful event will be on blues, with both acoustic solo artists and bands.  This year’s performers are…. 

 

Eddie Martin and The Eddie Martin Band

Born in London in the 60's British Blues Boom, Eddie Martin turned professional after being nominated for Best British Blues Guitarist, Band and Album between 1996 and 1998. Since then he has played or recorded with many greats from both sides of the Atlantic, including John Mayall, Peter Green, Buddy Guy, and Taj Mahal.

His songwriting seamlessly updates blues tradition to the modern world and his solo and band performances fill even hardened blues audiences with new enthusiasm for the expressiveness and power of this genre.

His acoustic style has developed into a percussive blend of traditional blues slide and finger-picking blues styles with flamenco rasguerdo techniques. These he combines with rack harmonica playing and foot percussion in the style of the one-man-blues bands such as Duster Bennett, Joe Hill Louis and Dr Ross.

Most strikingly innovative is the simultaneous rack harmonica and guitar style that he has developed and which caused the International Harmonica Federation to single him out as one of the innovators on the instrument at the World Harmonica Festival in Germany. 

He is riding high after his double nomination in the 2010 British Blues Awards for Best Harmonica Player and Best guitarist and with new reviews calling his album, Folk and Blues, "a quiet little masterpiece.". Eddie Martin has been described as "the most remarkable blues man of his generation" by Blues in Britain. Visit the website http://www.eddiemartin.com/ 

 

Pete Harris Blues Band

The Southampton-based Pete Harris Blues Band has been together in its current line-up since 2007 and is enjoying an enviable, and growing, reputation on the South Coast and beyond. Featuring Pete on vocals and guitar, Hugh Budden on harmonica, Bob Manley on bass and Steve Groves on drums, they produce an irresistible blend of swing, funk and down-home blues. Pete has performed on stage with many American blues artistes, notably Phil Guy, (brother of Buddy Guy), Lowell Fulson, Tabby Thomas, Gene "Mighty Flea" Connors, Mojo Buford (ex Muddy Waters Band), Byther Smith, Carrie and Lurrie Bell and Jerry McCain. He has appeared on BBC Television and many times on local and national radio.  Visit the website http://www.peteharrisblues.com/home.htm

 

Adam Franklin

Adam Franklin is a superb exponent of blues and ragtime music from a Golden Age of the legendary recordings of Charley Patton, Son House and Tommy Johnson. With a voice that is both powerful and soulful and equally at home on guitar and resonator ukulele, Adam’s performances are intense, energetic and highly entertaining. Brought up in a family of musicians and entertainers, Adam carries on the tradition with energy and passion. He makes his way through the pre-war American songbook, using his guitar as a band in a box and the floor as a foot-stomping drum kit.

 Adam has shared stages with many international artists including, Catfish Keith, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Steve James, Del Rey, Oli Brown & Toby Walker

 

Bob Long 

Bob Long is a British blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player specializing in "the old stuff". Most of what he plays is his interpretations of pre-world war II blues, jug band and ragtime material particularly music from the Mississippi Delta where he is a frequent visitor. He has performed at The Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, The Tommy Johnson Blues Festival in Crystal Springs and the legendary Ground Zero Blues Club. When at home, Bob hosts a monthly acoustic blues jam in Southampton.  Visit his website www.bobalong.co.uk

Thirsday Blues Club - 8pm
21 South St
Reading RG1 4QU

The ethos behind Thurdsday Blues is to put on the best we can find/afford and have a bloody good night once a month.
To this end our favourite trick is to put on a band with an international reputation or aspirations and team them with local unsung heroes.
Sometimes the offers we get are too good and the 'unsung' heroes have included Michael Messer, Delta Echoes, Snakebite and Sonny Black.

We are a non profit organisation and any money we make or scrounge is spent on artists.
