One-time amateur boxer Chris Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group, before joining The Thunderbirds in the mid 1960s. Probably best remembered for his version of the Jagger-Richard composition 'Out Of Time' and 'Handbags And Gladrags', later being covered by Rod Stewart and The Stereophonics. In the 1970s he also sang in the hard rock supergroup Atomic Rooster.
Chris Farlowe tour dates
In January 2017 Manchester musician Norman Beaker became only the eighth 21st-century British artist to be officially recognised and inducted into the American Blues Hall of Fame®, joining ranks with his colleagues John Mayall, Jack Bruce, Peter Green, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. It was recognition long in coming, but a richly-deserved honour to a man who has honoured the blues throughout his life. From the time he was a teenager Norman was at the nerve centre of the budding British Blues scene in its genesis, honing his skills with Alexis Korner, Jack Bruce, Graham Bond, and other great artists of their calibre.
This set the stage for his later work playing and recording with a "Who's Who of Blues" from both sides of the Atlantic, such as Chuck Berry, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Jimmy Rogers, Peter Green, Eric Burdon, Lowell Fulson, Van Morrison, Fenton Robinson, Carey Bell, Lurrie Bell, John Lord, James Booker, Mick Abrahams, Ruby Turner, Madeline Bell, Robert Plant, Paul Jones, Tony Ashton, Larry Garner, Chris Farlowe..and so many others. B.B. King said Norman was like "a white Freddie King", a compliment indeed. But though he's sometimes likened to Mr King and Peter Green, the source of his art is the wellspring of his own life and genius.
With his band of the best and brightest musicians in the UK, Norman is either playing his homeland, or tirelessly touring the Continent, from Sweden to Belgium to Germany to the Balkans and everywhere in between, sharing the classic blues of his birthplace and earning a loyal following wherever he plays.

The Norman Beaker Band tour dates
The Spikedrivers are one of the most original, innovative and exciting bands on the live music circuit. The bluesy combination of Ben Tyzack's sublime slide guitar, Constance Redgrave's deceptively simple bass lines, Maurice McElroy's precise drumming and percussion, along with their distinctive vocals and harmonies, creates a sound that is familiar yet different to anything you've ever heard before. Their roots are firmly in the Mississippi Delta, but their songwriting and arranging talents bring them right up to date.
Their music has been described as 'haunting', 'gutsy', 'tribal' and even ‘psychedelic’. Spikedrivers are the new sound of transatlantic blues.

Giles Hedley And The Aviators tour dates
Very professional blues guitarist performing blues, funk, soul, rock, reggae and jazz all rolled into one.
Robin Bibi tour dates
Earl's voice, stage presence and powerful performance coupled with his outstanding guitar playing bring to life the pounding rhythms of rock n roll and the blues. Based in Nottingham, Earl is a well known figure on the British rock 'n' roll and blues circuits. He has made appearances on BBC radio and TV including the prestigious Jonathon Ross show, a widely acclaimed success.
