The Blueswater in Newcastle (Support: Jed Potts and the Hillman Hunters)
The Blueswater will be returning to Newcastle for their first gig in the city in 2018 as part of their UK tour.
The Blueswater is an award winning, Edinburgh based band that tours internationally. Influenced by gritty, old-school rhythm and blues they blend the Chicago sound of Chess records with the earthy, droning grooves of Mississippi to create a style that is truly unique. Thick guitar riffs and frenzied harmonica solos are built around driving rhythms to create raucous, high-energy performances.
In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. The show, a musical history of the blues genre, now regularly tours across the UK.
'Edinburgh act The Blueswater have built a solid reputation in blues circles, both in Scotland and further afield.' - The Scotsman
'Definitely a band to watch!' - Blues in Britain
'Foot tapping Blues played by great live performers' Claire Cavanagh, BBC Bristol
