DownByTheRiver is proud to welcome the slide-stomp-blues machine that is Half Deaf Clatch (aka Andrew McLatchie) to the March Blues in the Bar session at The Georgian Theatre. HDC has been impressing European audiences for the last ten years with his original song writing and his raw, down-home take on the blues, so yes, we are very pleased to have Clatch with us in Stockton - the heart of the Tees Delta!

Clatch has been nominated in the finals of the British Blues Awards eleven times and he made it through to the finals of the 2018 UK Blues Awards in three categories. He has played most of the country’s top Blues festivals including; Hebden Bridge, Colne, Maryport, Upton, Broadstairs Blues Bash, Shetland and Orkney Blues Festivals and has twice played BluesFest at the O2 Arena in London.

In 2018 he released 'Dr Bloodwort's Nefarious Medicine Show' - an album and stage show which was commissioned by the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival. Blues Magazine had this to say about the album, ‘Viewing the track list you already knew that you will be dealing with a very special album....in which country blues, vaudeville, folk and Tom Waits clearly play a major role’

‘The one-man-band is a rare commodity nowadays, though there are notable exceptions: the wild, sinful Bob Log III, Chicago polymath The Lonesome Organist, and now Half Deaf Clatch....His sound is native to Mississippi, specifically its delta and hill country blues forms. With just a resonator guitar, a slide and an amplified plank of wood - his 'stompboard' - Half Deaf Clatch achieves some wonderful, wonderful sounds.’- Classic Rock Blues Magazine

Opening for Half Deaf Clatch will be Alastair Gordon who plays original and traditional finger-picked folk and blues delivered in a baritone voice alongside a creative approach to guitar and harmonica. He tells us that the lyrical content of his songs reflects a life split between South Yorkshire and North Saxony. Alastair lists his influences as Mississippi John Hurt, Charlie Parr, Bessie Smith, Dave Van Ronk, Townes Van Zandt, and Memphis Minnie.

‘Off kilter quirky baritone – that’s a very difficult style to pull off. Alastair absolutely nails it.’ – Christian Carlisle, BBC Sheffield


Under 16's accompanied by an adult
