Belmont Street Blues Afternoon

Café Drummond, Belmont Filmhouse, The Tippling House, 2-5pm, £12 Rover ticket

Top class blues, with a twist of jazz and soul will be all over Belmont Street on the afternoon of Saturday 10th March with a host of great names playing informal sets in three intimate venues. With a rover ticket you can roam from venue to venue checking out the music and the atmosphere. Three hours of great blues in three venues in Belmont Street for £12. 

The programme features:

Mike Whellans 

“One of Scotland's heroes, a bluesman of amazing  ability...a totally brilliant one man band” (Mike Harding, BBC). The undisputed master of the one-man blues format, playing electric and acoustic guitar, mouth harp, drums and mouth percussion. (Cafe Drummond 2-2.30pm and 3.50-5pm)

Michael Roach

The singer and guitarist hailing from Washington DC, learned his trade from fathers of Piedmont blues, the classic East Coast style from the 1920s. (Cafe Drummond 2.40-3.30pm and The Tippling House 3.40-4.30pm)

Jed Potts Hillman Hunters

Three piece electric band playing blues inspired by 50s and 60s American classics, whether laying back into a Freddie King ballad or digging-in to a hypnotic Muddy Waters groove. (Belmont Filmhouse 2-2.50 and 4-5pm)

Dixie Fried

Deep down and dirty Mississippi Blues Rock from guitarist/vocalist Craig Lamie and drummer John Murphy. A simple back porch approach to Delta blues, some dirty slide guitar and a dose of rock rhythms. (Belmont Filmhouse 3-3.50pm)

Lyndon Anderson & Sandy Tweeddale

Harmonica player Lyndon is “one of the best in the business and he also possesses a great big soul voice" (Blues In Britain). He joins top Scottish blues guitarist Sandy Tweeddale of Blues N Trouble fame. (The Tippling House 2-2.40pm and 2.45-3.30pm)
