lineup and details for Ben Poole and Lewis Hamilton on Fri 27th september 2013
“His phrasing belies his years. Definitely one to watch.”
“Amazing…I really loved his playing”
“A really good guitar player!”
“This is a young man to look out for as he is no doubt a rising talent and should be supported when he comes to a local venue.”
When you hear comments such as the above from two of the worlds’ greatest guitar players and some of the leading UK guitar and blues magazines you just know they have heard something very special. Twenty-five year old Ben Poole is currently being described as the most exciting young blues/roots artist to come out of the UK for a long, long time. A talented guitarist, singer and songwriter with obvious blues/rock/soul/R’n’B/country and Pop influences it’s hard to categorise the style and genre of this young man’s music. The past few years has seen Ben Poole’s profile raise far beyond expectation, his name cropping up regularly in Europe’s biggest selling guitar magazine Total Guitar who named Ben as “the guitarist to watch out for”. A Ben Poole Band live show is certainly very energetic and not to be missed, giving the audience just what they want, an audience likes to be entertained and Ben and the band never fail to deliver.
Ben was voted ‘Best Newcomer’ by Blues Matters magazine in their 2011 readers poll, was nominated for three awards at the British Blues Awards in 2011, including Best Young Artist and Best Original Song and represented the UK at the 2012 European Blues Challenge to be held in Berlin in March last year, Ben coming third out of nineteen entries from nineteen different countries.
Following on from the success of his debut EP EVERYTHING I WANT, Ben has now released his debut studio album entitled LET’S GO UPSTAIRS, released through his website, the album is receiving heavy airplay and rave reviews.
Together in Scotland for the first time with Lewis Hamilton, this Gig has the hallmarks of being one of the EPIC nights for Rock Blues in Scotland.
Lewis is no stranger to our fine venue and is certainly going places in 2013 will lead the night off with his un-mistakable sound and talent.
Since their formation in September 2010, this family power trio has gone on to become one of the fastest rising bands on the Scottish circuit. They have been booked for over 180 gigs in this time including festivals all over Scotland, from the Dundee Blues Bonanza to the Shetland Blues Festival. In addition to
providing cracking re-arrangements of some blues/rock classics they are prolific writers of their own material.
Their highly acclaimed first Album 'Gambling Machine' has received favourable radio airplay in many different countries and good reviews in the music press. They are now beginning the next phase of their musical journey and will be playing to a much wider range of venues all over the UK and Europe. See the Gig Diary page for more information.
