Gary Fletcher (The Blues Band)

A founder and ever-present member of The Blues Band, with Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness and Dave Kelly, Gary Fletcher has appeared with and/or recorded with Peter Green, Maggie Bell, Van Morrison, John Mayall, Long John Baldry, Guy Barker, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Kim Simmonds, Henry McCullough, Zoot Money, Nat Adderley, Guy Barker, the Memphis Horns and Christine Collister.

His music is a compelling mix of originals, including Blues Band classics such as ‘Greenstuff’ and the odd classic cover straddling blues, Americana and folk. Live, he plays guitar, slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele.

Gary has released several albums featuring both electric and acoustic lineups as well as the acclaimed ‘In Solitary’ solo offering, which along with the electric ‘Giant From the Blue’ album, secured 4-star reviews from Maverick and R2 magazines. Bob Harris has featured Gary live in the studio on his BBC R2 show several times.

“Some well-seasoned quality from a musician and composer who, as a cornerstone of the immortal warhorse of British blues, The Blues Band, is as steeped in the genre as a Mississippi hog roast.” Blues Matters Magazine, reviewing River Keeps Flowing  Gary’s 6th album.

This event was originally scheduled for Sunday 14th March. All tickets bought for that date remain valid.
