Ever since the success of the Gypsy Road show back in 2010, SR has been toying with the idea of another “educational” show based around the blues and its influence on the music of today. At long last everything is in place, and we are proud to bring you “A Brief History Of The Blues“, taking the audience back to the blues’ roots in the Mississippi Delta. through to Chicago, then the world in 3 sets!
Performing on the night will be Whitemud Slide, a band that specialises in Delta blues, Helter Skelter, one of the best known blues band in Hong Kong, and the latest kid on the block, Just Soda.
Date: Friday 9 August, 2013
Place: Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central
Admission: $120 (advance) $150 (on the day) price includes 1 standard drink
