Young blues and roots band Stark appear in Chester and Overton-on-Dee in May.

Stark are an exciting young band with their own take on the blues. Featuring Jamie Francis on plugged-in resonator guitar, Josh Franklin on bass and Evan Carson on drums, their sound blends old and new from both sides of the Atlantic. Their unique arrangements of classic Robert Johnson and Son House numbers are winning them a dedicated and growing fan base.

They also write their own highly original songs, which are getting them noticed by a host of prestigious publications, including Classic Rock, Fame, R2, Sound on Sound, Blues Matters, Blues in Britain and Time Out. They have had tracks played by Paul Jones and Huey Morgan on Radio 2, and they have appeared at top London venues, including the 100 Club and Dingwalls.
