Kelvin Davies + Chris Wright + Phil Hewett + Tony Gammage
Local boy-made-good, Kelvin Davies is a great friend of the club and has appeared many times, always to a delighted audience. A traditional country blues and ragtime musician, he nevertheless displays a British folk vibe, while keeping the style and music of some of the great bluesmen and women alive and strong. Kelvin also writes his own material in the same style and has received plays on The Cerys Matthews Blues Show on BBC radio 2, as well as performing at festivals such as Ely Folk Festival and at venues such as Cambridge Junction and London’s Dingwalls. Kelvin has the perfect foil for his virtuoso guitar work in the pared-back but always complementary harmonica of Gary Jones.
Tonight’s support will be three fine guitarists with roots in country blues. Phil Hewett is a regular performer at our club and we are delighted to welcome Chris Wright for his first appearance, together with the wonderful Tony Gammage of this parish who will be adding his blues playing to the mix to complete what will be a great celebration of the blues guitar.
