For Colne R&B Festival weekend, Cask n’ Keg presents a night of footstomping slide guitar blues from acoustic guitarist Ben Blue Waters.
Ben is a solo acoustic slide guitar player and singer, performing classic blues songs from the 1920’s onwards, and some originals. He has been playing music and gigging since the 70’s, Sometimes in bands, sometimes solo, and various genres from R&B to punk to avant garde, but he has always maintained a deep love of the simple country blues of artists like Son House and Robert Johnson, and the urban blues of Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker.
His first official show as a solo blues artist was in 2010 at Weymouth’s annual Lupus Festival. Since then he has been performing regularly throughout Northern England, building a reputation as an exciting and passionate bluesman, with raw intensity and a unique style.
