THIS Sunday’s blues session at the Hope Tavern welcomes The Mick Pini Band in concert as part of his bi-annual tour of the UK.
Originally from the Midlands but now working in Germany and across Europe, Mick makes this visit to the Tavern at Holton le Moor twice a year – and never disappoints.
With a lifetime in music, Mick plays Chicago-style blues in the traditional four-piece set-up, but 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.
While Mick alone is worth the visit, as testament to his standing in the blues world, he is supported by individuals making up a rhythm section which would be very hard to better.
The concert at the Hope Tavern starts at 4pm and the door charge is £7.
