John Fairhurst – Band on the Wall, Manchester – 27 Nov 2014
Posted on: Sunday, Nov 23, 2014
A rare North West gig for John Fairhurst next week in Manchester.
John Fairhurst truly epitomises the modern day wandering blues man. Stories of hunger, listlessness, roaming and reckless abandon are just a prelude to John’s story, something that can only be fully understood in the presence of the man. His magnetic raconteur style and guitar skills spurred him on to tour the globe and entertain crowds at illustrious festivals such as SXSW and Glastonbury to name but a few; his enigmatic stories relayed through his trademark howling vocals; think Captain Beefheart meets Tom Waits.
