Gig: Honeyboy Hickling – Liverpool – 15 Mar
Posted on: Sunday, Mar 2, 2008
Simon “Honeyboy” Hickling & The DTs
at Fogherty’s Function Room, Liverpool
Saturday 15th March 2008 (doors open at 8pm)
Following the great success of their appearances at The Harbourside Club in the last couple of years, Simon Honeyboy Hickling and the DTs are set to return to Foghertys. Simon is widely acclaimed as the finest harmonica player on the current British blues scene. As well as being a superb musician and a fine blues singer, he is a highly charismatic performer. He is backed by a terrific band that features the excellent Bob Wilson on guitar and boasts the terrific rhythm section of Tony Baylis and Tony Stuart.
Three decades of touring and recording have honed Simon’s individual, blistering harp technique to earn him an international reputation as a virtuoso player. In addition to his front-line performances, he has recorded with Bo Diddley and played alongside the legendary Steve Marriott. In 2001, he appeared on the Steve Marriott memorial concert with Paul Weller, Midge Ure and many others, where he stole the show with his customary, brilliant version of Marriott’s Big Train. This is a band that never fails to delight.
Fogherty’s Function Room is situated at 1, Blenheim Road, Liverpool, L18 3EH (0151 734 3906).
Tickets for the concert (£10 each) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855 or email: email@example.com. Please visit http://www.bluesinthenorthwest.com for a fund of information on the region’s excellent blues scene.
