Blues Night: The Norman Beaker Band
"Guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer Norman Beaker leads a five piece outfit reckoned to be one of Britain's best and most original blues bands; their legendary live performances played with a lot of emotion, a lot of excitement but also with a lot of humour. The band are permanently on tour, gigging in their own right or appearing with the likes of Chris Farlowe, Jack Bruce and Van Morrison.
BB King commented, " Norman is like a white Freddy King","
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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.
