Paul Lamb & The Kingsnakes
Lamb started playing the harmonica during his childhood, inspired by Sonny Terry, and he was fortunate to meet and collaborate with him after beginning to perform in clubs by the age of fifteen. Paul Lamb has also worked with Mark Knopfler, The Who, Rod Stewart and Jimmy Nail, played on BBC and film soundtracks, and various television commercials in the UK.
Paul Lamb was more recently inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall Of Fame. Blues & Rhythm magazine described his band as "lazily cocksure and coolly aggressive".

How Askew Band
With his new band, guitar player and songwriter How Askew has taken his modern blues sound to a whole new level – visceral electric guitar, shimmering acoustic and sweet dobro lines duet with his soulful vocals on self-penned songs swept along with the bristling energy of Richy Clarke on bass and Phil Muriel on drums.
Songs like ‘Law Dog’ are true life stories repainted in the imagery of the pre-war delta blues, a big influence evident in his slide guitar style – his sound has been described as “a wonderful concoction of old style blues, folky strums and some modern beats”.
