Blues 'N' Trouble
Rising from the depths of Livingston in the central belt of Scotland in the early 1980s, Tim Elliott and Blues ‘n’ Trouble have journeyed from their Edinburgh roots to secure an international audience and fan base, touring incessantly, working with blues greats such as Robert Cray, Pinetop Perkins, Charlie Musselwhite, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. Their Chicago blues inspired sound, delivered with take-no-prisoners attitude and barely controlled energy behind Tim’s impassioned vocal and harmonica, caused BB King to remark that B ‘n’ T were “the best white blues band in the world” - an opinion reinforced by the winning of a WC Handy award for their album with Louisiana bluesman Lazy Lester.
The Blueswater are an award-winning act from Edinburgh who regularly perform across Scotland and the UK. The band brings in the sounds of gritty old-school rhythm and blues, drawing inspiration specifically from the Chicago blues style of Chess records, building guitar riffs and harmonica solos around a tight rhythm section.
Sea Bass Kid are set to take the UK by storm with their original take on Reggae, Blues, Ska and Funk which some call Skariachi!! With a growing community throughout Scotland, the band are bringing honest music back to honest people with their energetic and memorable live shows that are not to be missed.
