Pistol Pete Wearn UK Tour arrives in Newport
October 29, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Moonshine Magazine Solo Blues Artist Of The Year 2015-16
“…a master slide guitar virtuoso” – Maverick
“With his…skill at blues, bluegrass and even spirituals, Wearn is a talent to watch” – R2
“…a classic English blues voice… His music is as true as it gets.” – Blues Blast
They say the blues is as much an attitude as it is a music. In the acoustic songcraft of Pistol Pete Wearn, the raw holler of the blues is given an English inflection, as if RL Burnside has returned to us with the express intention of ripping up the shires.
On Wearn’s new album, Service Station Coffee, the well-travelled troubador documents his rip-roaring live shows – and also further develops his raw style, cooking up a complex, moreish gumbo.
Named Moonshine Magazine’s solo blues artist of the year for 2015-16, Pistol Pete has been building an enviable name for himself on the live blues circuit for several years, both as a solo artist and as frontman of the electric outfit .44 Pistol.
Now focusing wholly on his solo work, Wearn’s blues has been labelled “music to drink, dance and stomp your feet to” by Derby Gig Guide, “devilishly catchy” by Staffs Live and simply “brilliant” on Yelp, the Stafford-based singer and songwriter gets every audience talking.
Please note that since this was added to the calendar stuff may have changed. It’s not my fault, it just happens sometimes.
