West Coast Blues

Where: Smugglers
Date: Friday 4th January 2019, 3 – 6pm
Entry: Free

Centred around the unlikely place of LA after the migration of blues players from industrial centres after the 40s, the West Coast sound is characterised by the jump-blues style. Ivan Outram and friends serve up helpings of the up-tempo fusion of jazz and blues first made famous by the likes of T-Bone Walker, influenced by Wes Montgomery, and later popularised by the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Carlos Santana.
