Never miss another 'Hugh Laurie' show
Having earned widespread critical acclaim for their shows in support of 'Let Them Talk', Hugh Laurie and the Copper Bottom Band head out on a major UK tour in June.
After the huge success of his debut album 'Let Them Talk', on which he celebrated and revived classic material from the world of NOLA blues, Hugh Laurie will release his second album 'Didn't It Rain' on May 6th.
'Didn't It Rain' sees Laurie depart the sounds of New Orleans as he follows the trajectory of the blues upstream and into the American heartland. It includes songs dating back to early pioneers W.C. Handy ('St Louis. Blues') and Jelly Roll Morton ('I Hate A Man Like You') to more recent artists such as Dr. John ('Wild Honey') and Alan Price of The Animals ('Changes').
The Copper Bottom Band's touring line-up features several of the musicians who appear on the album – Piltch (bass), Henry (horns), Lea (trombone), McLain (vocals) and Moreno (vocals) – and is completed by Herman Matthews (drums) and Mark Goldenberg (guitars).
Hugh Laurie is beloved to many for his role as an actor and comedian – from his comedy days in A Bit Of Fry & Laurie, Jeeves & Wooster and Blackadder to his more recent performance as Dr. Gregory House in the internationally acclaimed hit drama series House. The renowned actor is also a very talented blues musician, playing both piano and guitar in a genre that has inspired him since his music lessons as a child.
