Martin Harley supported by Sam Lewis
at Liverpool Marina
Wednesday, 13th November, 2013 (doors: 7.30pm, show: 8.30pm)
A lifelong devotee of acoustic guitar music, especially the ageless blues/roots sounds, Martin Harley has travelled the globe absorbing a plethora of diverse influences and honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.
Renowned for his prowess as a slide guitarist, Martin is almost unique in the UK in his playing lap slide. In other areas and styles, however, he has proved himself a master guitarist and a consistently astounding songwriter. Not only very popular in the UK, he has also earned a huge following in the US.
Martin will be supported by East Nashville rising star Sam Lewis, who plays a modern style of blues infused with the influences of Ray Charles and Van Morrison, in what promises to be an evening of genuine quality.
Liverpool Marina is situated at Coburg Wharf, Sefton Street, Liverpool L3 4BP.
Tickets for the concert (£11 each in advance, £12 on the door) are obtainable from John Welsh on 0151-428 2855 or from www.johnnysbluesclub.co.uk. Please also visit www.bluesinthenorthwest.com for a fund of information on the region’s excellent blues scene.
