See a blues ambassador
Published at 13:24, Thursday, 10 May 2012
BRITISH blues hero Eddie Martin heads for Cumbria this weekend.
The Bath-based axeman makes an appearance at The Lindale Inn, near Grange, tomorrow and The High Cross Inn in Broughton on Saturday, taking a break from his hectic international touring schedule.
A recent winner of the Blues Act of the Year in the South West Blues Awards, Martin honed his solo show touring the US, where he lived for a while holding down a residency on the famous Beale Street, in Memphis.
Playing a full drum kit with bass drum suitcase and simultaneous harp and guitar, the one man band show is a visual and listening treat for roots and blues lovers.
Constant globe-trotting and international releases over 25 years have led him to be described as “the Ambassador of British Blues”, and the most prolific UK blues artist of his generation according to the Penguin Book Of Blues Recordings.
He is currently touring the UK in support of his latest album, Looking Forward, Looking Back, which was released last month.
Entry to both shows is free.
