Stevie Nimmo / Ben Poole
May 6, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£ 12.50
A double bill of great blues players !
As one half of Scotland’s highly respected ‘Nimmo Brothers’, Stevie Nimmo has been a well known and respected figure throughout the blues and roots world for over 15 years.
Now, having toured extensively with the critically acclaimed blues rock outfit over the last few years, as well as taking to the road in a stripped back, acoustic format to continue promotion of his debut solo project ‘The Wynds of Life’, Stevie is now setting out on a new adventure in a full-on, electric, no-holds-barred trio format.
Stevie says that, although the acoustic project is extremely satisfying and allows him to showcase his voice and song writing talents in the perfect environment, sometimes “…you just want to break out the Les Paul, crank up the old orange amp and make some noise!”
Which is exactly what he plans to do.
The writing process is already underway and a new album is being planned for late 2015.
He is enjoying making music now as much as at any point throughout his 20 years in the business and is fully relishing the fresh challenge of a brand new project.
Don’t miss this chance to catch an artist at the top of his game doing what he does best – standing on stage playing his own music in his own passionate, inimitable fashion.
You will not be disappointed!
What they say:
‘Man that guy can sing!’ David Grissom (storyville)
‘Stevie’s voice is at times gritty, other times emotional but all times perfection!’ Maverick magazine
‘Stevie possesses a great depth to his work. He has come through with an album befitting those lending support and that pretty much says it all.’
“Displaying a burning passion to get down and dirty, he becomes neck deep in the swampy Louisiana side of things when he comes up with a future blues steeped rock gem as ‘Long Road To Heaven’.. Muscle Shoals at its peak would be proud of having recorded this track!” Flyinshoes review
Fresh from tour dates with King King and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Ben Poole is back with a brand new studio album in March
“A poignant start, that gradually built up to a rousing climax. Gary Moore would have been proud and impressed.” Wrinkly Rockers
“There was passion and fire as he interacted with the audience and band.” Blues Doodles
Inspired by the Blues, infused with a hard hitting, “in-yer-face” rock approach and topped-off by virtuoso musicianship, Ben Poole is being talked of as “the” new up-and-coming UK Blues guitarist; one of the finest to have emerged in Europe for years. Having already played with, and received critical acclaim from some of his heroes; legendary blues artists including Jeff Beck, Gary Moore and John Mayall, at just 27 years of age it appears that there is no stopping this young and incredibly gifted musician. His latest recordings reinforce this and make it blatantly clear that Ben is destined for a great future on the European Blues/Rock scene.
Ben is now back with a brand new studio album, out in March 2016 on Manhaton Records.
“He won’t be playing support slots much longer – he is a future star in his own right.” Andy Snipper – Music News
“Vocally he reminds me of a young Bryan Adams.” Get Ready To Rock
