Ramshackle blues

The 70 year old bluesman found fame late in life late after a breakthrough performance on Jools Holland’s New Year show in 2006. He’s gone on to play Reading, Leeds, the V Festival and Glastonbury and has become a stalwart of the UK music scene. His guitars are often customised and include The Three-String Trance Wonder, The One Stringed Diddley Bow and The Morris Minor Guitar.
