Gig: The Ben Poole Band – Telford’s Warehouse, Chester
Posted on: Sunday, May 12, 2013
Friday, 17th May – free entry before 9 pm, £4 after
Inspired by the Blues, infused with a hard hitting, “in-yer-face” rock approach and topped-off by virtuoso musicianship, Ben Poole is being talked of as “the” new up-and-coming UK Blues guitarist; one of the finest to have emerged in Europe for years. Having already played with, and received critical acclaim from some of his heroes; legendary blues artists including Jeff Beck, Gary Moore and John Mayall, at just 22 years of age it appears that there is no stopping this young and incredibly gifted musician. His latest recordings reinforce this and make it blatantly clear that Ben is destined for a great future on the European Blues/Rock scene.
“F***ing amazing! I loved his playing…I really loved his playing!” -Jeff Beck
“A Really great player!” -Gary Moore
