with BIG JOE TURNER & HIS MEMPHIS CARAVAN
A night of exciting soulful funky blues is ensured as Big Joe Turner and His Memphis Blues Caravan bring their exciting show to Woodhall Spa, an unexpected but highly welcomed diversion from big city venues such as Newcastle Opera House and Nottingham's Old Vic.
Big Joe was born in Jackson, USA but regards Memphis as his adopted home. Working his way up through Southern Juke Joints to play alongside blues legends such as BB King and Albert King. Indeed Big Joe Turner features on many of the recordings now regarded as the foundations of blues history.... and is one of the few remaining exponents of the 'true Memphis sound'.
With accolades such as Best Bass Player (British Blues Awards), Big Joe has played at the World's Top venues, including Ceasar's Palace, Royal Albert Hall, Madison Square Gardens and festivals throughout UK, Europe and USA. Big Joe was also BB King's Musical director and with his experience, his 6 piece band featuring American and French artists is a blend of the finest young talent and musicians with vast experience including the sax player from the Late Luther Allison's band, all have top flight experience! Led by the amazing Memphis vocalist Kevin Brown who is one of the finest of a new generation of blues singers, an artist whose memorable performances are full of soul and emotion.
Update! Joining the band for their concert at Woodhall Spa are special guest musicians Steve (the drummer with Texas) and the renowned guitarist Todd Sharpville from London.
The Memphis Blues Caravan have taken Europe by storm, their 2001 tour was a complete sell out!
