Live Midweek Music: Chris Lord & Her Blues Express
FREE ENTRY no need to book!
Relax on a Wednesday evening in the Maltings Bar while listening to the very best from the vibrant local music scene.
A powerful and raunchy rhythm & blues 5-piece, Chris Lord and her Blues Express produce classic jazzy blues with exuberance and joy, taking pains to dig out some rare gems of lesser-known tracks. The band is driven by the superb voice of Chris Lord supported by a heady mix of sax, flute and guitar all built upon a first class rhythm section. Together the band merges to weave a magical spell wherever they perform. Influences range from early artists such as Bessie Smith and Big Mama Thornton to more modern exponents of the art like Etta James, Beth Hart and Imelda May.
Joining Chris in the band are soulful tenor sax/flute player Tom Domagala; Rick Booth on guitar; Raf Ruocco on bass and Rick Philpott on drums - all great musicians with extensive experience and an impressive musical pedigree.
“A fine performance from Chris Lord and her Blues Express, I shall look forward to catching them again ……” John Mitchell – Blues in Britain
