Acoustic Blues Afternoon: Toby Mottershead, Allan Jones & Thomas Lucas, Mike Whellans
A triple bill of acoustic blues. Kicking off with early blues and ragtime, performed with a compelling authenticity and style by Toby Mottershead. Then we’ll have Delta blues, ragtime, jug band, Chicago and Boogie Woogie from the youth of Thomas Lucas and experience of Allan Jones. 'One of Scotland's heroes, a bluesman of amazing ability... totally brilliant (Mike Harding, BBC), Mike Whellans is the undisputed master of the blues one-man band. He sings and plays electric and acoustic guitar, mouth harp, drums and mouth percussion, sometimes all at once, as though he was lighting up a Juke Joint in Mississippi on a warm summer evening.
