BillBoy Miskimmim , Steve Payne, Paul Hobday - Bullfrog Blues Club Thursday June 2nd

June's Bullfrog Blues Club see the return of the wonderful Steve Payne,
whoes played a number of excellent concerts for us over the years, this
accompanied by the awesome harmonica play of Belfasts, Bill Boy Miskimmim. 

On harmonica is Billy Boy Miskimmin, from Belfast.  In 1995  he was
headhunted by Nine Below Zero, one of the key British blues bands of the
era.  In 2003 the legendary U.K  band The Yardbirds  (who featured Eric
Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck in their lineups!) recruited Billy Boy,
and his soloing soon became one of the band's most distinctive features.
The album   "Live At BB King Blues Club" shows how integral his playing had
become to the band's sound.  With The Yardbirds Billy Boy became part of
rock and blues aristocracy, playing with legends like BB King and The Doors
and earning accolades not only from Alice Cooper but from Jimmy Page,
Scotty Moore and others.      He's also played sessions for Stiff Little
Fingers, Marc Almond and others.

Variously described as one of the UK's most unique and versatile guitarists,
Steve Payne is also feted as a talented and non-predictable
singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, wordsmith and story-teller whose
compositions crossthe musical boundaries from Blues to Folk to
Contemporary Roots.
