Lightnin' Willie and the Poor Boys supported by Wolftrain on Friday 26th October 2018

Lightnin' Willie is a veteran bluesman with in excess of twenty years of touring experience. Originally from Dallas Texas he now resides in the Los Angeles area. Willie plays in a traditional blues format with traditional instrumentation i.e. guitar, keyboards, accordion, bass, drums, and horns. He plays on a regular basis in the Los Angeles area with Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson who incidentally produced his new album NO BLACK NO WHITE JUST BLUES on Little Dog Records which is receiving incredibly consistent reviews and airplay worldwide. ' It features ten clever and powerful self-penned compositions that explore the haunting expressions of human feelings that inhabit the blues alongside a fair share of wit. He writes songs in a concisely crisp manner. He sings with rich, full-bodied character, while playing guitar with sizableskill '- VIVASCENE. ' The great grooves, understated guitar, vocals, and lyrics fit perfectly in the genre without seeming old and tired make for one of the best listens of 2017 '- VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE/DECEMBER 2017. ' In a world of guitar slingers, Los Angeles-based bluesman is a rare find. His guitar, a 1950 Gibson ES-5N has a rich, deep tone and Willie's tasteful style create a sound that's light years away from the howling Fender Stratocasters that populate so many modern blues recordings. His understated dexterity on guitar and cool, relaxed vocals form a unique style that's simultaneously laid back and steeped in tradition. ' - ELMORE MAGAZINE 2017.

' One of the best contemporary Blues songwriters & performers today '- PETE ANDERSON/GRAMMY MULTI AWARD WINNING PRODUCER.

' He isn't a simple minded dance band leader. He developed his deceptively simple, boundless appealing style over a lifetime of propinquitous musical experience...' - JONNY WHITESIDE.

' What he doesn't know about putting on a good show isn't worth knowing...'- MICHAEL MEES/BLUES IN BRITAIN.
