REMINDER - WATERMELON SLIM at The Bullfrog Blues Club, NEXT Thursday (5th April)



Only a few days before WATERMELON SLIM is at The Bullfrog Blues Club - this coming Thursday 5th April - He has SOLD OUT his Dorchester gig, so get your tickets for the Bullfrog NOW!

Watermelon Slim (real name is Bill Homans) is a truck driver turned blues player - he's also a member of MENSA, and has a master's degree in history from Oklahoma State University. 


Watermelon Slim's songs strip things down to basics to bring out the raw, impassioned intensity and a fresh contemporary vision to country blues. His instrumentation is sparse, usually just Slim alone with his National Steel guitar, but sometimes blowing fine harmonica. He certainly knows the country blues forms and even performs unaccompanied field hollers, but he also knows how to modernise the blues without distorting it. The end result is a furious, visceral acoustic blues, as Slim growls and shouts his songs from the heart. 


If you like Seasick Steve, you’ll LOVE Watermelon Slim!
