FUTURE JUKE: A 21ST CENTURY BLUES FESTIVAL PRESENTS
IAN SIEGAL PLAYS PRE-WAR BLUES
PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS
Under 16s accompanied by an adult
In this special one-off show, Ian Siegal will play songs by some of the great pre-war bluesman including Big Bill Broonzy, Leadbelly,
Charley Patton and Son House.
2018 was another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman and renegade Americana'man. He scooped Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA.
Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.”
While he is known as a bluesman and often seen fronting his electric band, it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees. When it’s just man & guitar those qualities shine through.
