This Sunday’s Blues Session at the Hope Tavern in Holton le Moor features George Shovlin and the Radars.

Inducted into the American Blues Hall of Fame in 2014, George Shovlin first performed publicly while at college in 1970, establishing himself as one of the outstanding blues performers in the region.

In the early ‘80s, he teamed up with local blues harmonica hero, Jim Bullock and formed the seminal blues duo ‘The Biscuit Kings’.

After playing throughout the North East for nearly ten years the duo broke up and George went on to form the George Shovlin Band, which played together from 1995 to 2005. In 2014 George Shovlin, George Lamb and Stu Burlison reformed the band, with Kev Scott on drums, as ‘George Shovlin and the Radars’

The show, on February 14, starts at 4pm, £8 on the door.
