    Doors 19:00 | Live 19:30 | Finish 10:45

    KARA GRAINGER with FULL TOURING BAND | Saturday 02 July 2022

    Her music career began in a small suburban town of Sydney Australia and since then  has taken her on an incredible journey throughout the globe.  Combining tasteful blues and slide guitar, soulful vocals and a heartfelt approach to songwriting,  Kara's  truly unique sound will leave you  uplifted, inspired and always wanting more.

     At the age of 16 Kara joined with her brother Mitch Grainger to form the band "Papa Lips". The band toured consistently throughout Australia and produced two studio albums that received national air play.

    The band was heavily influenced by the sounds of Stax recording in Memphis, and by the Funky style of blues and soul that derived from New Orleans.

    In 2008 Kara signed to Australian label "Craving Records" and was invited to the US by producer David Kalish where she recorded her debut solo album. The recording entitled "Grand and Green River" received critical acclaim and remained in the top 30 of the Americana Charts for 38 straight weeks.

    Since then Kara has made three further albums whilst residing in the US. In 2011 "LA Blues" was recorded live at Studio City Sound. The cd paid tribute to some of Kara's earliest blues inspirations and in 2013 kara recorded and released"Shiver and Sigh" through Los Angeles record label "Eclecto Groove." The album was produced by grammy award winning producer David Z with some of LA's finest musicians, including Mike Finnigan, Hutch Hutchinson, James Gadson and Kirk Fletcher among others. 

    One of Kara’s touring highlights was performing in North east India for the Himalayan Blues Foundation. Her performance at the "18 degrees cultural Festival" introduced the local community to roots and blues music for the very first time.

    She has traveled to Indonesia several times to perform at the the Jakarta International Blues Festival, performing together with her US band and also as a special guest with "The Jakarta all Women Blues Review".

    In 2011 she toured Japan openning the show for "The Swampers and Donnie Fritts", the infamous house Rhythm section for "Fame Recordings" in Muscle Shoals…She has taken her band to Switzerland where she performed at the "Sierre Blues Festival" as well as "Lucerne". The band has also toured in Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg and Spain..

    In 2015 Kara performed at the "Beautiful swamp Festival" in Calais France and also to sell out crowds on her debut tour of the Uk. Another highlight was perfoming at "Ronnie Scotts", Londons premier blues and jazz venue.

    In the US Kara has performed at several Festivals such as 'The Portland Waterfront Blues Festival', 'Blues from the Top' in Colorado and "Austin City Limits". She has also opened the show for many extraordinary acts such as Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy,Taj Mahal and Jonny Lang, to name a few.

     

    HANNAH ALDRIDGE

    HANNAH ALDRIDGE Duo Show | Popular return to LRB with GUSTAV SJODIN from Swedish rock band Jetbone

    Hannah Aldridge is the daughter of Muscle Shoals legend Walt Aldridge. An Alabama Music Hall of Famer, Walt Aldridge is a prolific and decorated songwriter of countless Number One and Top Ten hits recorded by the likes of Lou Reed, Reba McEntire, Travis Tritt, Earl Thomas Conley, Ricky Van Shelton, Ronnie Milsap, and Conway Twitty.

    Mixing her personal life and the sounds of her hometown, Hannah Aldridge’s new album also draws in influences from across the rock genre. Working with people with one foot in country music and one foot in rock, Hannah Aldridge makes a fresh kind of Southern Rock styled by Southern Gothic storytelling.

    Recorded at Creative Workshop in Nashville, Hannah Aldridge worked with Muscle Shoals writers such as Mark Narramore, Tosha Hill, Matt Johnson and Brad Crisler and artists such as Andrew Combs, Ashley McBryde, Don Gallardo, Ryan Beaver, and Sadler Vaden on “Gold Rush.” She teamed up with Jordan Dean and M. Allen Parker, who were instrumental in working on her new album, and finally finishing by calling on her Dad, Walt Aldridge, to master the record. In total, Hannah Aldridge compiled a team of distinct talents to work with her. With their help, Hannah Aldridge has put together a progressive, creative and memorable body of work.

    “It’s about being self destructive,” Aldridge said of her new album. “That is the underlying tone. The album goes back to when I was younger, and after touching on that, to now. In ‘Aftermath,’ the very first line is: ‘I was born in a crossfire.’ It starts from day one.”

    JESS JOCOY

    JESS JOCOY | Saturday 02 July 2022

    Jess Jocoy makes atmospheric Americana for rainy days and twilight hours. It's an ethereal sound with organic roots, anchored by a longtime love of country music, a storyteller's nuanced delivery, and a folksinger's finesse. A sound that blurs the lines between genres, creating its own blend of twang and texture along the way, described as "the growth of an exciting songwriter, destined to be one of the greatest of her generation" by Alan Cackett, renowned Journalist and Broadcaster.

    Raised two hours south of Seattle, Jess grew up beneath the drizzling skies and lush landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. "I'm a mountain girl at heart," she says, nodding to the scenery that shaped albums like her acclaimed debut ‘Such a Long Way’ and the 2021 follow-up EP ‘Brighter Eyes’ with the woozy, water colored beauty of her native Washington State. She created both records in her adopted hometown of Nashville, a city whose songwriters had first captivated her attention as a child.

    Gaining traction in 2018 after winning the Music Movers Competition held by Uber, Jess opened for country music artist Chase Rice during CMA Fest. In 2019, she appeared as a contestant on the NBC hit series 'Songland' (episode 103) where she pitched her original song ‘Easy’ to Kelsea Ballerini. That same year, she was an official showcasing artist at the US AmericanaFest and invited to play Nashville's historic Bluebird Café, not once, but four times; three Sunday Spotlight showcases and one writer's round hosted by Musicians Corner.

    Jess has had airplay on BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Ulster with Eve Blair making her 'Artist of the Week' on her Late Show. This coincided with an invitation to play on the NPR Mountain Stage programme with Kathy Mattea as host. Jess was voted as winner of the Americana-UK Twang Factor 2 and named as Caffè Nero Artist of the Month for November 2021, her music played in over 750 coffee houses across the UK.

    The new studio album ‘Let There Be No Despair’ will be released in May 2022 supported by a UK tour through June/July.

    CONNOR SELBY | Full Band | JENNY COLQUITT | Saturday 06 August 2022

    Doors 19:00 | Live 19:30 | Finish 10:45

    CONNOR SELBY | Saturday 06 August 2022 |

    Connor Selby is a rising British star in the traditions of Eric Clapton and Peter Green, who has already performed with his band at Wembley Stadium, at the age of 22, at the behest of The Who.

    Winner of The Young Artist of the Year Award in the 2020 and 2021 UK Blues Awards, the young bandleader-guitarist-vocalist draws on influences as diverse as B.B. King, Ray Charles, Free and Nick Drake, creating a soulful blend of hard-hitting blues and emotional, introspective song writing, which, at times, evokes a modern take on the best of the British blues boom of the 1960’s.

    Connor has recently recorded a self-titled album at Masterlink studios, due for release later this year, featuring 'Redtenbacher's Funkestra', a house band of world class musicians with a CV's to prove it (think Elton John, David Bowie, Annie Lennox, Jack Bruce etc). This release should further cement Connor's reputation as one of our brightest young talents; a talent who has already garnered invitations to tour with not only with legendary Bluesman John Mayall but also a UK stadium tour with the aforementioned The Who.

    Emerging artist Jenny Colquitt encompasses a unique combination of Americana, indie and folk rock and pop. Winner of the 2021/2022 FATEA 'Female artist of the Year' award and the 2020/2021 GSMC Award for best female solo singer/songwriter.

    Jenny's music is described as fit for film and storytelling at its finest. A voice that uniquely combines the melodic undertones of artists such as Eva Cassidy and the rawness of Alanis Morissette. She writes with soul, lyrical vulnerability and style to accompany her musicality both through keys and guitar. Jenny is the lead singer/songwriter of Americana Rock band ELY, another emerging act on the British music scene.

    Jenny's debut album 'Something Beautiful' was released on the 26th November 2021. Described as 'very much recommended, for her strong and expressive voice, impactful lyrics and winning melodies' by BBC Radio 2's Paul Sexton.
