Gig: Tom Attah – Alexander’s, Chester – 15 Sep 2011
Posted on: Sunday, Sep 11, 2011
Tom Attah is a strong and soulful performer of new and original acoustic blues material, based in the UK.
Combining the raw power of Son House with the dense hypnotic rhythms of Howlin’ Wolf and the barrel-chested roar of the old blues shouters, Tom’s live shows take audiences on a journey from the Delta to the Download with 21st century intensity.
Traditional and transitional, Tom is the modern, living bluesman. Taking the music from the past and carrying it into the future, Tom has stories to tell and songs to play. This is dance music, this is strong music, and this is The Living Bluesman.
Tom appears at BBs Blues Club, Alexander’s, Rufus Court, Chester . . . Thursday, 15th September, admission £6, and will be accompanied by Manchester-based harmonica player, Franny Eubanks. Ring 01244 340005 for further details.
