Thursday 15 February CATFISH

British Blues Award winners, Catfish, have carved a reputation for themselves as an excellent live band with a phenomenal frontman in 22 year old guitarist/vocalist Matt Long who plays with a real passion for the blues. The band crashed into the blues scene in January 2015 with their debut album, ‘So Many Roads’, going straight in at No. 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts. Their EP, a tribute to BB King called ‘When BB Sings the Blues’, charted at No. 5 in February 2016. They received 2 nominations in the British Blues Awards 2015, taking third in Emerging Artist, and followed this with three in 2016, taking first in keyboards and third in Young Artist. In January 2017 they released their much-anticipated second album ‘Broken Man’ which is almost entirely original material. Broken Man also reached No. 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts in March 2017. This is blues with a very broad brush – from epic prog anthems to stripped back piano ballads. www.catfishbluesband.co.uk
'Catfish's new Broken Man album...is a turning point for the band showing that not only is Catfish one of the best live bands on the blues circuit at the moment, but that the calibre of their songwriting matches that.' Blues in Britain.
'Catfish are one of the finest live bands in Britain today. The quality of musicianship is outstanding and in Matt Long, they have one of the greatest young guitarists on the scene today...' Blues Matters Magazine August 2017.

Thursday 22 February BIG STEAM

These guys have every right to be called true originals.  They were at the forefront of the British R&B revolution in the early sixties and can trace their musical lineage through that period to today via an impressive individual and collective history.  Paul, Rob and Geoff were members of the legendary band, The Others, who also happened to be the third Crawdaddy Club house band following The Stones and The Yardbirds, whilst Tim was guitarist with that mighty power trio, Smile, whose other members were Brian May and Roger Taylor who, of course went on to form Queen.  This illustrious pedigree resulted in the formation and evolution of a truly original band whose output firmly based in their roots promises an exciting set of classics, standards and punchy original material.
