Earlier this year the gravel voiced John Fairhurst was nominated in The British Blues Awards for Best Original British Blues Song. To say the man had worked hard to earn such recognition would be an understatement. In 2012 he made a grueling 200+ shows across 10 countries. So what is coming? Well a new album is promised With cracking drumming from Bristol’s Toby Murray and blistering harmonica from Joe Strouzer.
some of you may recall this mention we made of Bristol’s Looking Glass closing down (read about it here), well they have a grand finale Fri 18TH & Sat 19TH OF OCTOBER at which many great artists will be performing. John Fairhurst will be performing there on the 18th October and this will be their ONLY BRISTOL GIG FOR THE REST THIS YEAR as they’re so busy so don’t miss it!
And if you wondering why you should go and see him then here’s a new recording of John Fairhurst performing Hungry Blues live at Faak Am See, Austria.
