The Lamb Folk Club presents its first blues and boogie night next Wednesday (August 7) with special guests Bob Hall and Hilary Blythe.

Bob is critically acknowledged as Britain’s finest blues and boogie pianist with a distinctive style that has influenced a generation of piano players and left a lasting legacy. His extraordinary career dates from the blues explosion of the Sixties as a founder member of The Groundhogs and later Savoy Brown. He subsequently led head-lining bands whose sidemen included Jack Bruce, Charlie Watts and Mick Fleetwood as well as acting as accompanist to a host of touring blues artists including John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Chuck Berry.

A veteran of folk and blues festivals, Bob’s passion for his music and American folk and blues history has left him with a host of stories all introduced in his own inimitable style.

His long-time partner Hilary Blythe adds superb vocals and propulsive bass and her own moving treatment of blues and gospel classics are highlights of their shows.

Admission is £6 on the door, all are welcome and the music starts at 8pm. Inquiries to 728268.
