Joe Strouzer & Nia

August 27, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:45 pm

Free entry

 

Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, Joe Strouzer learnt blues from his father and spent his younger years listening to Gypsy Dave Smith playing guitar along the cobbles of Pink Lane. He took up the harmonica aged 17. 

A harmonica player, blues shouter and guitar picker, he sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between and, of course, gives the occasional impression of a freight train… 

 

“The only British guy I’ve ever liked” Blind Texas Marlin

 

Young Welsh artist Nia is a blues singer. She has a voice that could cut through solid steel, and leave the metal scars lace lined. A fierce, politically charged lyricist channeling Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday. Really starting to find her identity as a songwriter with her new material, the only broken heart she sings of these days is society’s. A hip hop soul in a blues body, she wields that resonator guitar like an axe against the world around her.
