Saturday, 21st May 2016
Doors Open: 7.30pm Show Starts at: 8.00pm
The UK’s leading contemporary bluesman, Ian Siegal, and Grammy-nominated Mississippi songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jimbo Mathus, present an irresistible combination of roots blues and folk Americana, delivered with irreverent humour and wonderful nuggets of folklore.
Ian Siegal is an eight time British Blues Award winner, European Blues Award winner and two time US Blues Music Award nominee. He’s sung with the prestigious ONJ orchestra in Paris, played in more than 40 countries and has twice been awarded Best Blues Album of the Year by MOJO - the only non-American to achieve this distinction.
Jimbo Mathus found fame with alt-Americana sensations Squirrel Nut Zippers. The band played at the second inauguration of President Bill Clinton and at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, while their five studio albums achieved gold and platinum sales. Since the Zipper's split, Jimbo has toured and recorded with Buddy Guy and became a founding member of the South Memphis String Band.
