ONE of the most popular artists on the European Blues circuit makes a welcome return to the Hope Tavern Blues sessions this Sunday, March 20.
Mick Pini and his band will be in concert at the Tavern, in Caistor Road at Holton le Moor, as part of his bi-annual UK tour.
Leicester-born, and now German-based, Mick Pini is the real deal; no pedals, no effects, just a rare 54 Stratocaster played by a bluesmeister.
With a lifetime in music you’ll hear echoes and influences from the whole tradition of the blues in Mick’s playing.
His uncompromising adherence to a genuine belief in his music has never been deflected.
Mick started playing guitar as a young boy back in 1960. Since then he’s paid his dues in pubs, clubs, festivals, concert halls and even busking on the streets.
Even Eric Clapton called him the “legitimate successor to Peter Green”, while Mick Vernon described him as “having the energy and attack that made Freddie King one of the greats”.
The concert runs from 4pm to 6pm and the door charge is £6.
