We are delighted to present two of the UK ’s leading Blues exponents performing on the same bill  Bex  Marshall and  Sister Suzie so don’t miss out on this amazing show! UK British Blues Award winner and 4 time European Blues Awards nominee Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock, ragtime and roots pickin’. Sister Suzie & The Right Band bring you an explosive high energy show, reminiscent of a blues shouting juke joint but with a contemporary stamp that captures every toe tapping, foot stomping heart in an audience. Taking inspiration from her favourites like Elmore James, Jimmy Reed and soul queen Irma Thomas: Suzie delivers every piece with a soul and a passion that could never be described as a performance, but rather a statement of the obvious love of the music that lives in her. Nominated by Chicago's Blues Blast magazine for best newcomers debut album, Sister Suzie & The Right Band are not to be missed!

“[Marshall] …deserves wider recognition for her spit and sawdust vocals and fluid resonator guitar licks.”

Bex Marshall  

Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul and Bex was the voice of Janis for the Big Brother and the Holding Company with the original members on their last UK Tour. A songwriter of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and she wrote and produced her last album herself which was nominated for album of the year in the UK Blues Awards.Touring internationally as a three piece band which augments her unique style of of virtuoso playing, Bex is literally a musical tornado and in Oct 2019 just released her latest single “I Can’t Look You In The Eye”, through 26 Records and Sony/Orchard.

A Devonshire lass now residing in London, the product of two very different family’s, one blue blooded landed gentry, the other Irish Romany.

Sister Suzie

Sister Suzie hailing from the North of Northumberland delivers her shows with an undiluted boisterous charm and she packs a punch in every performance. She and The Right Band take their audience on an explosive musical journey of blues, rhythm and blues, and raucous rockers paying tribute to Suzie's favourite influences such as Elmore James, Irma Thomas and Willie Mae (Big Mama) Thornton. Suzie and her band set the stage alight with their original material too, leaving audiences tapping their toes and smiling from ear to ear long after the show is over. Having been working the clubs on the South coast and in the capital together for two years Sister Suzie & The Right Band released their first album in September 2018 under The Last Music Company label, being re released on vinyl in July 2019 - the ideal format for these cracking live analogue recordings; the album has also received a nomination from Chicago's Blues Blast magazine for best newcomers debut album! From playing the South Coast where Suzie now resides to now wowing audiences across Europe, America and playing every day in Glastonbury in 2019; Sister Suzie & The Right Band are a force to be reckoned with and not to be missed!
