Saturday 14th November – John Fairhurst solo then a full band rock/blues set

Saturday 14th November
Tickets: £10
Doors: 8.30pm
The Kings Arms, Malmesbury

John Fairhurst is probably the hardest working and most up and coming rock and blues artists in the UK.

On this special one-off night, Malmesbury Acoustic Sessions and Malmesbury Rock are coming together to present John Fairhurst as a complete blues experience, both as a solo acoustic artist and with his full rock/blues band for an explosive night of some of the most original (yet rootsy) rock and acoustic blues coming out of the scene in recent years.

The Guardian described John’s debut album as “Truly exquisite”, his following ‘Hungry Blues’ EP gained a nomination for best single the British Blues Awards. After mastering acoustic blues through years on the road, John Fairhurst returned with a newly formed band last summer to unleash an explosive live show onto Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Shambala and Boomtown Fair.

With a residency on the Harley Davidson European Festival and a tour with Johnny Winter also under the belt the new album ‘Saltwater’ was released in October followed by a worldwide publishing deal with Metropolis Studios in London.

Shortly after it’s release a single from the album, “Breakdown” made it onto Classic Rock’ Magazine’s Track of the Week. His music has now also found it’s way onto the big screen with two films that are due to appear at two of the most prestigious Film Festivals in the world. Martin Scorsese’s latest production “Tomorrow”, stars Stephen Fry and Joss Stone (with a cameo from John) and will premier at Cannes Film Festival 2015.

But we are still listening to the old stuff too:
