Latest Additions to the line up
We are pleased to announce that this week we have added Liverpools hottest new band The Hummingbirds (Friday) and Blues Boy Dan Owen (Saturday)
to our lineup.
The Hummingbirds are a 6 piece acoustic outfit from Liverpool, influenced by music from the 50s/60s era. The Hummingbirds capture that “Liverpool” sound as well as putting an interesting twist on conventional folk and blues music, bringing it to a more mainstream audience providing what they describe as modern skiffle.(21st Century Merseybeat)
‘Blues Boy’ Dan Owen is a young singer-songwriter from Shrewsbury who performs ‘rootsy’ blues infected songs on guitar with the help of his home made ‘stomp box’ and occasional harmonica. A you-tube video performance of Dan singing Bob Dylans’ ‘ Ballad of Hollis Brown’ attracted the attention of Mick Fleetwood who has taken Dan under his wing as a ‘mentor’ for this young artist. The video has now had over 400,000 hits on YouTube
