This event takes place at Islington Assembly Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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. Voted 'Male Vocalist of the Year' & 'Young Artist of the Year' - British Blues Awards 2010.

Kit's trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK.
The Observer likened her to Nick Drake and Macy Gray, and Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw have featured Kit on their BBC shows. Her three albums include the legendary, Danny Thompson and incorporate her very own 'blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility'.
'Impressive.. all the makings of a new British guitar heroine' (The Guardian).
