AMERICAN BLUESMAN LARRY GARNER with THE NORMAN BEAKER BAND
With his wonderful expressive voice, Larry Garner’s songs are delivered with a sense of irony and passion. His lyrics are meaningful and amusing in equal measure and he’s a fine guitarist. Larry is great performer and very much a modern day Bluesman. His songs are stories of his past and everybody’s present. Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the home of Swamp Blues music, Larry was inspired by legends Silas Hogan and Clarence Edwards amongst others. He has won many awards including the W.C. Handy Award and is one of the most adored performers on the Worldwide Concert & Festival scene. When Larry first came to England he toured with the Norman Beaker Band and they are united once more.
The Norman Beaker Band have been at the forefront of the UK blues scene for over 3 decades working with a Who’s Who of stars such as BB King, Buddy Guy, Alexis Korner, Jack Bruce, Van Morrison, Chuck Berry and many more. Like Larry, Norman’s songs are full of social comment and wry humour.
Catch their session with Paul Jones on BBC Radio 2 in April !
This Spring tour is a coming together of two modern day Troubadours with something new to say !
