There’s a treat for fans of acoustic blues this Wednesday 13th November 2013 when Martin Harley comes to Johnny’s Blues Club.
A lifelong devotee of acoustic guitar music, especially the ageless blues/roots sounds, Martin Harley has travelled the globe absorbing a plethora of diverse influences and honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today. Renowned for his prowess as a slide guitarist, Martin is almost unique in the UK in his playing lap slide.
In other areas and styles, however, he has proved himself a master guitarist and a consistently astounding songwriter. Not only very popular in the UK, he has also earned a huge following in the US.
Martin will be supported by East Nashville rising star Sam Lewis, who plays a modern style of blues infused with the influences of Ray Charles and Van Morrison, in what promises to be an evening of genuine quality.
The evening takes place at Liverpool Marina with 7.30pm doors for an 8.30pm show.
Tickets are £11 in advance and £12 on the door. Advance tickets from John Welsh on 0151 428 2855
