British blues rock guitarist and singer Joanne Shaw Taylor has been a force to reckoned with on the blues scene for half her life – she was discovered at age 16.
Growing up in England’s Black Country, she was inspired in her early teens to play the blues after hearing musicians such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix.
Joanne’s debut album White Sugar mixed rock riffs with blues influences and first opened the door. Her career has since gone stratospheric, with her breaking the notoriously hard-to-crack US market.
Joanne has beaten the stereotypes of her age and gender, gaining acclaim from critics and peers alike. Subsequent albums; Diamonds in the Dirt, Almost Always Never and Songs From The Road followed and Joanne’s fan base rose globally.
Following international recognition in 2017 including performances on Later… With Jools Holland, BBC’s Glastonbury coverage and outstanding reviews for her latest album, Wild, Joanne tours with a formidable force starting 2018 with a sell-out UK and European tour.
Joanne has been acquiring famous fans across the guitar world including Joe Bonamassa, Tedeschi Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wilko Johnson, Glenn Hughes and John Mayall to name but a few.
A rare opportunity to catch the greatest star in the British Blues firmament in an intimate environment. Don’t miss.
