Oli Brown Band
Saturday 9th April 2011
Doors Open at 8pm
On Saturday 9th April The Citadel welcomes fantastic up and coming blues guitarist Oli Brown as part of his UK tour.
Up until 2002, Oli Brown had never picked up a guitar, yet by 2006 at just 16 he had toured in America, twice, opening for Blues royalty such as Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, shared UK stages with Walter Trout, Paul Jones, Buddy Whittington and even the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall. Such hallowed connections only serve to reaffirm the belief, that for many, Oli is the most promising Blues man to emerge from Britain in a long time. Not only a guitar prodigy but also a singer, songwriter and consummate performer. This is a young man who shows total dedication to the genre he loves. Voted ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ & ‘Young Artist of the Year’ at the British Blues Awards 2010.
The Citadel’s blues fans will be in for a treat with this amazing young performer who has had rave reviews from the likes of Joe Bonamassa and Classic Rock Magazine.
Oli Brown Band will be performing at the Citadel on Saturday 9th April. Tickets are £12/£10. Doors open at 8pm.
