Gig: Raphael Callaghan’s Acoustic Blues Lounge – Engedi Arts, Colwyn Bay: 09.08.13
Posted on: Monday, Aug 5, 2013
This week’s Acoustic Blues Lounge, on Friday, 9th August, at Engedi Arts in Colwyn Bay, is going to be a good one!
Raphael Callaghan’s special guests are the trio Mellor Nesmith, featuring one of the UK’s finest blues harmonica players, Clive Mellor from Manchester.
He won the first Blues Harmonica Championships at Burnley Blues Festival and is much in demand for his awesome command of the humble instrument. He’s played with US blues and gospel stars The Holmes Brothers and, latterly, with Richard Hawley in concert.
At the Blues Lounge he’s with Nigel Smith on guitar and vocal and Eric Quiney on bass. Not to be missed!
Doors open 7.30pm, with music from 8.15pm. Admission £5, bar and cafe plus chance to win blues CDs.
Engedi Arts is in the old Imperial Hotel building opposite Colwyn Bay railway station.
All best wishes, Raphael
