Exciting start for new season of rhythm and blues in Barrow

BLUES fans have a string of performances to look forward to in Furness.


The season kicks of for Barrow’s R and B Club, at Bar Continental, tomorrow with the Blues Boy Kings.

The nine-year-old Lincolnshire-based group have honed their skills, inspired by legendary singer BB King.

The band described its sound as “raw yet polished, smooth yet exciting” and placed themselves between Muddy Waters and Fleetwood Mac, via Freddie King and Elmore James.

Members include Jason North and his wife Sam Skidmore, along with other members, who together have toured the blues festivals. Last year they released their second album Second Time Around.

Singer Jason North said: “Last year was a great year, with the band appearing on the main stage of Hebden Bridge Blues Festival, Newark Blues Festival and Bushey Blues Festival.”

Their other appearances included Blues and Bikes Festival, in North Lincolnshire.

This year, former member Mark Barrett, who is well known by R and B Club members, has rejoined the group fresh from his recent tour with the Hoax.

After their R and B Club debut, on Friday, regulars can expect several more blues acts.

Next week’s band, The Revolutionaires, is expected to be very popular, and the following week there will be a first-time performance from Bluestown.
