Friday 12 July 2013 @ 09:00pm - Andy Broad

Taking inspiration from the great delta players such as Robert Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Son House and Mississippi John Hurt, Andy Broad combines their raw syncopation with the sounds of Chicago (e.g. Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf) and the modern song writing approach of the likes of Robert Cray welding the whole into a powerful music for the modern day.

Equally at home on Acoustic and Electric guitar, playing both slide and fretted styles, Andy considers his music to be Urban rather than Country Blues, after all he lives in the City Of Portsmouth and has never been near a cotton field in his life! The subject matter of his music reflects this urban perspective, whilst remaining very much in the traditions of the music.


"clever and acomplished guitar work embelished with a resonant clear vocal ... some fine slide" - Bob Chaffey, Blues In Britain Magazine

"... a rollicking bit of slide ... " - Chris Broom, The News
