Doors 8pm, for 9 pm start – tickets £12
The final gig of the year at Worthenbury brings two of the most exciting musicians to break through on the British blues scene in recent years, Marcus Bonfanti on guitar and Paddy Milner on keyboards.
Their collective C V is already bursting with prestigious appearances with stints with The Otis Grand Big Band, The Mississippi Mudbloods with Ian Siegal, Alvin Youngblood Hart and Luther and Cody Dickinson of The North Mississippi All Stars and The Black Crowes and as members of Californian blues/soul star Earl Thomas’s band. In recent weeks Paddy has been playing with the legendary Jack Bruce and Marcus will be playing a series of gigs at the Jazz Cafe in London with Shuggie Otis.
We are very lucky to persuade them to appear at Worthenbury and we feel that it is a ‘must see’ gig as the general feeling is that they are heading for big things. Doors are 8pm for a 9pm start and tickets are £12 (not £10 as in an early flyer).
