Gigs: Blues & Swing at Bury Met

Posted on: Sunday, May 5, 2013

Some upcoming blues and swing at Bury Met:

Saturday, 1st June, 8pm

LARRY GARNER AND THE NORMAN BEAKER BAND

Tickets: £12 / £10 concession
Venue: Main Theatre

Larry Garner is without doubt one of the top modern day
Blues artistes touring the world today. He picked up on the
Swamp Blues music in Louisiana, inspired by artistes such as
Silas Hogan and Clarence Edwards. His songs are delivered
with a sense of irony, his lyrics are both meaningful and
amusing in equal measure.

Like Larry, Norman Beaker’s songs are also full of social
comment and modern day situations, this is a coming together
of two modern day troubadours with something new to say.

Friday, 7th June, 8pm

KING PLEASURE AND THE BISCUIT BOYS

Tickets: £14 seated / £10 standing
Venue: Main Theatre

King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys are more than just the
world’s greatest swing band, they are an institution! Paul
Jones on BBC Radio 2 called them “the hardest act to follow
since the parting of The Red Sea”, Atomic Magazine from New
York wrote “To those who say that swing is a musical form
best left to Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This
British combo is bullet-proof!”.
