Artist Update: Ben Blue Waters

arm

Ben is a solo acoustic slide guitar player and singer, performing blues songs from the 1920’s onwards.

He’s been playing music and gigging since the 70’s, sometimes in bands, sometimes solo, and various genres from R&B to punk to avant-garde, but he’s always maintained a deep love of the simple country blues of artists like Son House and Robert Johnson, and the urban blues of Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker.

His first official show as a solo blues artist was in 2010 at Weymouth’s annual Lupus Festival. Since then he’s been gigging regularly in Yorkshire and beyond.

Ben appears on the Weaver Stage at 2pm.

We can’t wait!
