Profile picture for Porch Swing Blues

Sadly, Tim Laycock who was due to perform on 9th March has been taken ill with a heart attack. The good news is he is out of hospital and on the mend so we wish him a very speedy recovery.  We will invite him back as soon as he can come.

In the meantime, we are very lucky that local favourites Porchswing Blues have stepped in and will give us a lovely evening of laid back blues music to warm up this cold winter!

Dave Ferra: guitar, slide, harmonica and vocals. Dave has played his blues, spirituals and ragtime, on 12 string guitar, slide guitar, rack harmonica for many years around the South of England and built up an impressive reputation. His varied blues repertoire ranges from pre-war Delta to Duster Bennett and Jimmy Reed. Dave’s light timbre voice and wide instrumental range perfectly suit his raggy East Coast style. You’ll particularly love the slide and harp work. With several strong solo CDs behind him,

Chris Berry: guitar and vocals A solo artist since the late 60s, Chris also spent two years on the New Orleans music bar and coffee house circuit as a singer/songwriter, and ten productive years in California and Texas. His fingerpicking Texas blues guitar playing combines with a fine bluesman’s voice – intensely expressive and impressive, whether singing slow blues or driving R’n’B. Drawing on influences from John Renbourne to Bonnie Raitt, Louis Armstrong to B.B.King, Chris Berry and Dave Ferra combine as Porchgswing Blues to produce some authentic good-time blues music with a feel of New Orleans and beyond.
