Little Theatre Acoustic Stage | 13:30 – 14:30

Dynamic and seasoned professionals, they combine their talents to create show-stopping Blues performances.

Based in the north of England – Manchester and Sheffield – they have played all over Britain, Ireland and Europe.

Both excellent singers, superb instrumentalists and exciting performers – as a duo they have a huge sound, but can also offer a larger ensemble as a trio or quartet.

Taking influence from the likes of John Lee Hooker, Little Walter and R.L. Burnside, their repertoire includes irresistible original material and choice covers.

‘A whiff of Chess Chicago Blues … explosive bottleneck slide… Blues which is still able to surprise – not too swamped with respect, however respectful it is of the masters.’
