George Shovlin and The Radars
Originally played as the George Shovlin Blues Band, between 1995 and 2005. In 2014, the same band re-formed as ‘George Shovlin and The Radars’ with the prime intention of establishing themselves on the National blues scene.
After making a huge impact in the NE, they very quickly progressed to playing a number of prestigious Northern gigs and finally playing the Great British Rock and Blues Festival, Skegness, followed by festival appearances at Fife Jazz and Blues Festival, Reivers Rock and Blues Festival, Durham Blues Festival, Diggle Blues Festival, Maryport Blues Festival, Mainsforth Music Festival, Bell Rock Blues Festival, Arbroath, culminating in playing on the British 'Blues Matters' Stage at the Great British Rock and Blues Festival, Colne, at the end of August. In January, 2016 the band played again at the Great British R & B Festival, Skegness as well as a number of other festivals and commenced a short national tour in May, 2016.
In 2017 they played at the Durham and Cleethorpes Blues Festivals and then Thornhill, Darlington, Southport and Bowness Bay Blues Festivals in 2018. In March, 2018 the band embarked on a hugely successful 4-date tour of SE England.
George Shovlin was inducted into the American Heritage Blues Hall Of Fame. He is an icon in local blues circles and thoroughly deserves his place in the Blues Hall Of Fame.
'George Shovlin and the Radars' re-formed in February 2014, after previously performing as 'The George Shovlin Band'. The band consists of previous band members George Shovlin (vocals, guitar), George Lamb (lead guitar), Stu Burlison (bass guitar) as well as drummer Kev Scott, who has replaced original drummer Ian Hamilton. As the 'George Shovlin Band', they supported Canned Heat, John Mayhall, Savoy Brown, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, the original Blues Brothers band, and earlier, as a solo performer, George Shovlin supported blues originals Dave 'Honeyboy' Edwards, Doc Ross, Cousin Joe Pleasant, George 'GP' Jackson and Eddie 'Guitar' Burns. The pedigree of the band is too great to be included here but is substantial. North East-based blues band. Profile Pic by John Finlayson.
