Sun Feb 4 at 7:00 £12.00 advance / £14.00 door


Known for having the most powerful voice in British blues, Connie Lush is right up there amongst the greatest of the 'blues shouters' of the 40s 50s and 60s. Sassy, energetic, fun, soulful and charismatic, ahe has very possibly won more awards in her illustrious career than any other lady in Britain today. Think Koko Taylor and you are right in the zone.

Mat Walklate and Paolo Fuschi QuartetMat Walklate and Paolo Fuschi Quartet– Poynton Legion
Sun Mar 4 at 7:00 £12.00 advance / £14.00 door


There is no doubt, as a duo Mat and Paolo are truly exceptional but on this occasion, as a bonus, they bring the quartet. Not often seen, the addition of a startlingly excellent rhythm section takes this to another level. Magnificent roots blues with a glorious rhythmic twist incorporating Ska, Reggae, and Latin undertones.

Climax Blues BandClimax Blues Band – Poynton Legion
Tue Mar 15 at 8:00 £15.00 advance / £17.00 door


One of the longest established acts in the genre, and at their zenith perhaps the most famous, Climax can be considered UK blues royalty. So when George messaged me about a possible show I should have replied "Bloody 'ell George, are you kidding?" but I didn't. Bursting with pride I answered in absolute earnest "I thought you'd never ask".
