Blues with a feelin’

“Highly regarded, both here and in the US, and Europe, for the gritty passion of his voice and his finesse on the blues frets…” ~ Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
Papa George is widely regarded a master blues artist. In 2013 he was inducted into the ‘Blues Hall Of Fame’, and in 2016 was recognised at the British Blues Awards as a ‘British Blues Great’.
Described by Muddy Waters’ guitarist Bob Margolin as “a powerful deep blues player and spectacular artist”, Papa George is one of the top bluesmen of his generation. Joining him will be bassist Pete Stroud (Peter Green, Buddy Whittington, Roger Chapman) and drummer Darby Todd (Buddy Whittington, Kee Marcello, The Darkness).
Together the Papa George Band perform the best of today’s UK blues, with all the attitude and enjoyment you’d expect!
