The Blueswater in Newport (Shropshire)- Spring 2018 Tour
April 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Blueswater return to Newport as part of their UK spring tour.
The Blueswater is an award winning, Edinburgh based band that tours internationally. Influenced by gritty, old-school rhythm and blues they blend the Chicago sound of Chess records with the earthy, droning grooves of Mississippi to create a style that is truly unique. Thick guitar riffs and frenzied harmonica solos are built around driving rhythms to create raucous, high-energy performances.
In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. The show, a musical history of the blues genre, now regularly tours across the UK.
‘Edinburgh act The Blueswater have built a solid reputation in blues circles, both in Scotland and further afield.’ – The Scotsman
‘Definitely a band to watch!’ – Blues in Britain
‘Foot tapping Blues played by great live performers’ Claire Cavanagh, BBC Bristol
