An unmissable double-bill!
Blues guitarist Ben Poole is being described as one the most exciting young artists to come out of the UK for a long, long time. His live shows are energetic and impassioned, giving the audience just what they want. Now having just finished a 140-date, 19-country tour of his latest and highly anticipated album Anytime You Need Me, it appears things are only going from strength to strength with this now well established blues, rock and soul guitarist, singer and songwriter.
Up until 2002, Oli Brown had never picked up a guitar, yet by 2006 (at just 16) he had toured in America, twice, opening for Blues royalty such as Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, shared UK stages with Walter Trout, Paul Jones, Buddy Whittington and even the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall. Such hallowed connections only serve to reaffirm the belief, that for many, Oli is the most promising Blues man to emerge from Britain in a long time. Not only a guitar prodigy but also a singer, songwriter and consummate performer. This is a young man who shows total dedication to the genre he loves.
