THE 2011 Tavern Blues Sessions begin again this Sunday, January 23, with a visit from The Blue Bishops to the Holton le Moor venue.

The Blue Bishops spend most of their playing time in Europe, where the harder rocky edge to their blues style has a wide crossover appeal.

The nucleus of the band has always been guitarist/slide player Simon Burrett and lead vocalist/harmonica/guitar player Geoff Grange.

While many bands often depend on their versions of classic numbers, The Bishops are not averse to covering a classic either if they can put a distinctive slant on it, but the majority of Blue Bishops material is original.

The session starts at 4pm and the door charge is £6.
