LARRY GARNER - The Cellars, THIS Thursday! (19th May)

Larry Garner is without doubt one of the top modern day blues artists touring the world today, his songs are stories of his past and everybody’s present.

Larry was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he picked up on the Swamp Blues music popular in that area, inspired by artists such as Silas Hogan and Clarence Edwards.

His songs are delivered with a sense of irony, his lyrics are both meaningful and amusing in equal measure. Added to this Larry has a wonderfully expressive voice, is a fine guitarist and a great performer.

Larry has won many top awards including the WC Handy Award and is one of the most adored performers on the Concert / Festival scene all over the World.

When Larry first came to England he toured with the Norman Beaker Band and at last they are reunited.

The Norman Beaker Band have been at the forefront of the UK blues scene for over 3 decades working with a Who’s Who of Blues stars including, BB King, Buddy Guy, Alexis Korner, Jack Bruce, Van Morrison, Chuck Berry and many more. You may have seen them as Chris Farlowe's band at South Parade Pier (promoted by Barking Spider Promotions)  and also The Cellars

Like Larry, Norman’s songs are also full of social comment and modern day situations, this is a coming together of two modern day Troubadours with something new to say.
