Ben Blue Waters presents four of the regions top bluesmen, individually and together, in an evening of solo, duo and quartet performances.
Gerry Cooper – The Master. Gerry has an encyclopedic knowledge of acoustic blues styles and musicians, from the well known to the most obscure, and can play them all skillfully and with feeling.
Julian Socha – The Wizard. The sounds Julian can get from an acoustic guitar have to be heard to be believed. He is a supremely gifted musician, and a wonderful improviser. His first love is the blues, but his playing encompasses many different genres, often in the same song.
Sleepy Jake Segrave – The Prodigy. A young man in his twenties, with the soul and sound of someone thrice his age. Jake’s love of early acoustic blues artists is evident in his playing. His sound is something that can’t be taught, it’s something you feel inside.
‘I’ve played with all these guys separately on many occasions, in various pubs and events in Yorkshire, and thought it would be great fun to get them all together for a showcase at a proper venue, with a stage and lights etc. Each musician will play a solo set, then I’ll join with them each in turn for a series of short duo sets, and we’ll all come together as a quartet for a few numbers at the end.’
