Event Information

SPIKEDRIVERS

Ben Tyzack (gtr/voc/hca), Constance Redgrave (bs gtr/voc/perc.) & Maurice McElroy (dms/perc/voc) are one of the most original, innovative and exciting bands around. Their

combination of gutsy slide guitar, rock solid bass, infectious grooves and highly distinctive vocals, creates a big sound that is uniquely their own,. headlining music festivals throughout the UK and on the Continent. “The atmosphere the band is able to create is nothing less than remarkable” (Blues Revue USA) “The Spikedrivers were simply the revelation of the festival” (The More Blues Festival, Belgium) “…three musicians interweaving and complementing each other perfectly” (fRoots UK)

GUY TORTORA.

“ . . .. very, very good stuff!  Excellent song writing . . . very subtle, beautiful, and lovely side guitar.”   .Paul Jones BBC Radio 2

“ . . .. he sings with as much understated soul as anybody has a right to expect.  Tortora is something of an undiscovered treasure..” Americana.co.uk

Guy Tortora has laid claim to a unique niche on the Blues ‘n’ Roots scene in the UK and on the Continent.  His two recent solo albums received a warm welcome in the Blues ‘n’ Roots press. Some describe his music as postcards from a personal Storyville, delivered with conviction and passion.

He is accompanied by Janos Bajtala, who moved to the UK from Budapest, Hungary.  Janos honed his keyboard skills listening to records smuggled into Hungary by his merchant-sailor uncle, whose ship regularly docked in New York City.  From these illicit 78’s & 45’s he absorbed the style and flavour of the American jazz and rhythm and blues that became his passion.

Uczta muzyczna dla wszystkich miłośników klasycznego bluesa. Zapraszamy na świąteczny koncert i proponujemy państwu jeden z najbardziej oryginalnych zespołów współczesnego, światowego bluesa grający w charakterystycznym dla siebie folkowym stylu. Trzej muzycy: Ben Tyzack, Constance Redgrave i Maurice McElroy są nie tylko wybitnymi instrumentalistami ale również śpiewają co w połączeniu z harmonijką ustną i perkusją daje bogate i niepowtarzalne brzmienie.
