The Simon “Honeyboy” Hickling Band at Fogherty’s at Function Room on Saturday, 20th February 2016
(doors 8pm; show starts at 8.45pm)
Simon Honeyboy Hickling is widely acclaimed as the finest harmonica player on the current British blues scene. As well as being a superb musician and a fine blues singer, he is a highly charismatic performer.
He is backed by a terrific band that features the excellent Bob Wilson on guitar and boasts the marvellous rhythm section of Tony Baylis and Frank Walker.
Three decades of touring and recording have honed Simon’s individual, blistering harp technique to earn him an international reputation as a virtuoso player.
In addition to his front-line performances, he has recorded with Bo Diddley and played alongside the legendary Steve Marriott. In 2001, he appeared on the Steve Marriott memorial concert with Paul Weller, Midge Ure and many others, where he stole the show with his customary, brilliant version of Marriott’s Big Train. This is a band that never fails to delight.
