He plays in a trio too, they play some real traditional blues and are ****ing amazing live. He plays fortnightly at a bar/cafe near me and it has to be my favourite gig in town, blows me away every time ;P

Nice one. Has some good acoustic stuff.

This is the top jazz and blues artist in my town. He's amazing. I'm going to see him live as soon as I can. Found out about him only some days ago:

Not strictly local. But he lives in London. Although North West, rather than South West :poke:
Lives near lotsa my mates though, so that balances it out, riiiight? :p:
I'm always ****ing promoting this guy, but he deserves it. Opened for the likes of The White Stripes, The Soledad Brothers, The Von Bondies, dubbed "Mister" by John Lee Hooker himself. The man is a ****ing great.

His latest record has more folky singer-songwriter inflections, but earlier stuff tended towards straight blues, more or less.

check him out :cheers:

He's a Memphis guy that plays on Beale Street on friday and saturday nights, weather permitting. Not in Beale Street bars. On the street.
