BLUES NIGHT – SAT 15th MAY – 8:30pm
SHAR BABY, STEVE PAYNE & SPECIAL GUESTS
This promises to be quite a night!!
Shar Baby hails from Birmingham, Alabama and although she’s been playing for over 40 years, only recently began to record. This brought her to the attention of a wider audience, including Steve Payne who has brought her over here for her first UK tour. Her style has been described as country blues via Chicago and can be seen and heard at www.digitdocrecords/acatalog/About_Shar-Baby.html
Steve Payne is an outstanding blues guitarist with a distinctive style and an international reputation. As well as work in this country, he has recently toured Germany, Switzerland and Canada to great acclaim. Steve’s a very entertaining performer who makes a welcome return to the village hall.
Special guests so far include Johnny Hewitt on harp and Russ Williams on double bass (both from Smokehouse Blues), Chris Jackson (harp and guitar, The Crawl) and Peter Price (guitar). Invitations have been extended to others and expect to see more names added soon!
Admission is by ticket (£10/£12 door). Again these are available from the village hall bar or Roger Kenyon on 07946 378599.
