This month’s Blues Train will be a special treat for all Blues Fans with a double helping of  rhythm & blues, featuring two wonderfully talented artists: Ryan Marshall and Katie Bradley.

Ryan Marshall

London based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Marshall returns to PizzaExpress with power blues format, fusing blues, rock and jazz.  As Hype magazine put it: “If you thought you understood what guitar playing was, you need to take a moment to watch and seriously reconsider.”

Katie Bradley 

Singer-songwriter Katie Bradley came into the spotlight with her 2012 iTunes Blues hit “I hear the river” which received a nomination for Best original song in the British Blues Awards, which came from her debut album “She’s Ready”. 

Katie continues to ascend celebrating a highly acclaimed career supporting and collaborating with artists across the world formerly Luther Allison, Suzanne Vega and most recently Rhythm and Blues greats: Lucky Peterson, Taildragger, Georgie Fame, Geno Washington to mention a few.

In 2015, Katie completed a 22 date UK Tour with US Blues Guitar ace Kirk Fletcher (Fabulous Thunderbirds, Charlie Musselwhite, Joe Bonamassa Muddy Wolf Band and more)

Katie tours the world with the best musicians and has a busy schedule writing, recording and playing festivals worldwide is Katie’s speciality. Katie’s stage presence, talent and luminosity wins her new followers wherever she plays. Katie extends her musicality, rhythm and love for rich melody in the Blues by playing Blues harp. 

Katie has been complimented by Paul Jones for her intuitive playing, and it often sets her apart from most other performers as she adds an extra dimension to her performance. In 2014, the world-famous harmonica maker Anthony Dannecker endorsed Katie Bradley with her own customised harps, uniquely hand crafted in response to her own playing style.
