Blues heaven

Blues great Brooks Williams and Guy Davis have joined forces for a joint UK tour which includes a date at Hebden Bridge Trades Club (Nov 10).

“We did a dry run in Upstate New York last year and, wow, Brooks already has such a bluesy repertoire,” recalls Guy. “At one point while I was playing, he picked up the 1919 Martin mandolin I had with me, and played some of the sweetest Yank Rachell type stuff I’ve ever heard.

“The better he played, the better I played so this tour definitely had to happen.”
