Sunday Blues with Joe Strouzer + Nia Wyn
May 22, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree entry!
Join us for a Sunday night of blues old and new with Joe Strouzer and Nia Wyn who will be performing two shared sets trading songs and stories over the sweet sounds of their resonator guitars and lonesome harmonica.
Young Welsh artist Nia Wyn 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, she sings of broken hearts at home and in society. A hip hop soul in a blues body, she wields that resonator guitar like an axe against the world around her. A brave, gutsy young artist already raising herself above her contemporaries because of her remarkable voice – both physically and lyrically.
A harmonica player, blues shouter and guitar picker, Joe Strouzer sings songs from his travels from Newcastle to New Orleans and a hell of a lot of places in between. His driving resonator guitar is coupled with true harmonica voodoo and biting songwriting of modern trouble, heartpains, moonlit trysts, drinking and devilment, peppered with a rich history of blues.
Heal your hangover with some Sunday roasts, custom bloody marys and proper blues!
Absolutely free entry!
We’re open from 10:30am, serving Sunday roasts from 12-9pm
