Sandy Tweeddale Band Unplugged feat. Lyndon Anderson

A special set to open this year’s festival!

Scottish guitarist and blues legend Sandy Tweeddale and his band will be joined by the talented Lyndon Anderson on harp and vocals to play an unplugged set of classic blues songs. Inspired by Big Bill Bronzy to Muddy Waters, Lightin Hopkins to Buddy Guy over the years Sandy has cut his teeth playing the music of blues legends. Now, with Lyndon Anderson, a true heavyweight of the harp, this rare, unplugged session is not to be missed.
