Eliana Cargnelutti

Eliana is the new hope of italian rock blues. A strong singer and a crafty guitarist, one of the rare real front women of the italian scene. She plays a flavor of rock blues with a bit of everything in between: electric funk, mixed with pop and jazzy instrumentals, raw rock, tight blues grooves, illuminated by her skills as an electric guitarist.

Joe Bonamassa put Eliana’s 'I'm a woman' on the list of the 8 recent songs absolutely to hear.

Eliana played with Deep Purple’s drummer, Ian Paice in a memorable sold out concert in Austria with the only all-female tribute to Deep Purple in the world, her 'Strange Kind of women' project. Eliana has been on tour throughout 2019 from Europe to US with her rock blues quartet Eliana Cargnelutti Band

George Shovlin & George Lamb

Firm Sedgefield favourites, George Shovlin and George Lamb…lead guitarist in the band…have played as a duo since the mid 1990s, in response to local NE demand but their blues/Americana performances have resulted in increasing recognition. They have now played a number of significant gigs as a duo, including Rievers Rock and Blues, Skegness, Colne and Southport Blues Festivals.

Friday 17th December

Chantel McGregor

The Blues came calling first, but rock was always waiting around the corner. Well it would be, wouldn’t it? Coming from the deep south, it was inevitable, but living in the deep south of a major Yorkshire City, there’s a gritty hard edge to life!

A female guitar prodigy, Chantel was told by a major label that she had a "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!", we say Chantel can play it however she likes!
A regular back at Sedgefield but not since 2016, oh how times flies by....

The Trevor Sewell Band


Winner of 9 major awards in the U.S.A and 4 times nominated in the British Blues Awards.

Trevor Sewell is a British Guitarist/Vocalist and Hollywood (HMMA) Award Winning Artist who has been widely associated with the current 'New Wave of British Blues'. It's always great to have Trevor back at Sedgefield.

Teresa Watson band

Featuring the very talented lead singer Teresa Watson. Well known in the North East of England pub and club scenes, she gave up singing after twenty years to recharge her batteries.

Unfortunately this forced retirement as such lasted six years but now she is back with a vengeance.

Certainly a very good combination, a very professional band with very slick and intricate tones.

for every gig...
