Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Preview: From the Mississippi Delta to the Ouseburn Delta

On Friday (Feb 15) the Mississippi blues will be heard down on the Ouseburn Delta. In the subterranean depths of Cluny 2 Cedric Burnside's stripped-back guitar/vocals and drums duo gig is likely to draw a large crowd of aficionados keen to hear a new century take on Mississippi's 'Hill Country' blues.

Cedric Burnside started out playing drums, later switching to guitar, following in the footsteps of his grandfather RL Burnside. Now, at the age of 40, Burnside's raw, energetic blues is coming to Newcastle thanks to Jumpin' Hot Club's co-promotion with host venue Cluny. Burnside's insistent, rhythmic guitar and vocals will be complemented by Brian Jay's drumming as the duo play cuts from the new album Benton County Relic. Think White Stripes with a rhythm and blues edge and you'll get the idea. 

And, what a bonus, King Bees' frontmen - Michael Littlefield, guitar and vocals, and Scott Taylor, harmonica and vocals - will play a support set! Doors open at eight, tickets £12.50. Telephone the Cluny on 0191 230 4474 to secure your ticket, it's gonna be a good 'un.
