Xander Brothers

The next event in the excellent Blues on the Rock series happens next Sunday 14 Sept.

Blue C host their third Blues On The Rock session at Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton, from 1pm-4pm this Sunday, afternoon, September 14th. Their special guests are the Xander Brothers.

Keith and Stuart Alexander, as part of their larger group Xander and The Peace Pirates, have already played at the Philharmonic Hall twice in recent months, supporting Eric Bibb and Buddy Guy. Not bad! So here is a rare opportunity to catch the Xanders performing a blues set in the intimate surroundings of the fort’s basement music venue.

The Talkin’ Blues segment will attempt to shed some light on Keith’s phenominal guitar technique. There will be a display of blues memorabilia and a chance to win blues CDs. There is a cafe/bottle bar and admission is £3. Sunday afternoon, September 14th, 1pm-4pm. Don’t be late!
