2018 was another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman. For Spring 2019, Ian Siegal brings an unplugged presentation of songs from his latest album All The Rage to The Blues Kitchen stage.
Titled Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards 2018, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA, Siegal is a must-see musician for 2019. Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible calls him a “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK".
While he is known as a bluesman and is often seen fronting his electric band, it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can. Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees. When it’s just man & guitar those qualities shine through even stronger.
