Kenny Neal Band with Tim Elliott And The Troublemakers

Kenny Neal is the real deal, a New Orleans native, he was taught to play the blues by his father at an early age and his performances prove that the blues is definitely in his blood.  He is known as a modern swamp-blues payer with a style steeped in all the the sizzling sounds of his native Louisiana. They infuse their own style to Delta blues from Mississippi, funk and soul from New Orleans, and Cajun sounds from southwest Louisiana.

His band recall the musicianship of the Neville Brothers and his musicianship on guitar, harmonica and lap-steel as well as soulful, impassioned vocals is sure to impress. He has spent his life in music, honing his unique style and is a member of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and a multi-award winning talent.

And there’s more! Tim Elliott, founder and leader of Blues n’Trouble, Scotland’s leading blues band for decades, is performing with his longstanding acoustic trio.  Tim’s voice and gritty crackling vocals will refresh some old school blues classics.
