Ian Siegal to play Liverpool Studio 2

Ian Siegal Liverpool Studio 2

Ian Siegal has jammed with Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood, sung with the prestigious ONJ orchestra in Paris, played in 25 countries and his next CD is a BBC recording made at the Royal Albert Hall.

So why isn’t this multi-award winner playing the biggest venue in the region? Partly it’s because he prefers smaller, more intimate venues; and partly because his chosen music, -blues with a contemporary twist - is mostly ignored by the media in the UK. A few weeks after playing in Liverpool he will be appearing on one of the biggest TV shows in Holland.

Though he is best known as a bluesman and variously described as a legend and a national treasure, a typical Siegal solo show is much more than blues, taking in the American folklore of songwriters such Guy Clarke and Townes Van Zandt, and his own genre-defying songs.  What binds together this varied repertoire is Siegal’s fabulous voice and command of the guitar.

Ian will play Liverpool studio 2 Parr street on the 9th April 2014
