Details

A founder and ever present member of The Blues Band with Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness and Dave Kelly, Gary’s music straddles blues, Americana and folk. He plays and sings a compelling mix of originals and classic covers using guitar, slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele.

Tonight his band will showcase some truly exceptional players including Tom Leary (Feast of Fiddles, Lindisfarne, Tanna etc) on violin and mandolin and, formerly of ‘Man’, ‘Wild Turkey’ and Welsh favourites ‘The Blues Bunch’, Swansea guitar legend Alan ‘Tweke’ Lewis. Sam Kelly (Tom Robinson Band, Dave Kelly Band) features on drums and, local man from St Athan, the excellent Jack Fletcher plays bass. Gary has appeared with and/or recorded with Peter Green, Maggie Bell, Van Morrison, John Mayall, Long John Baldry, Guy Barker, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Kim Simmonds, Henry McCullough, Zoot Money, Nat Adderley, Guy Barker, the Memphis Horns, Christine Collister etc. He’s released several albums featuring both electric, acoustic lineups as well as the acclaimed ‘In Solitary’ solo offering, which along with the electric ‘Giant From the Blue’ album, secured 4 star reviews from Maverick and R2 magazines. Bob Harris has featured Gary live in the studio on his BBC R2 show several times and had him to play sessions for his YouTube channel ‘Under the Apple Tree’.

This promises to be an exciting evening of high quality performances from musicians of considerable pedigree performing top class material.
