2016 saw the very successful album launch of Chris Bevington & Friends. How it has been received in the UK, USA and globally has been fantastic, so we’re bringing them to Southport for our third annual Big Blues Festival!
The album reached Number 2 in the Blues UK charts in April and followed the success of Album No: 1 which also topped the UK Blues Charts and also made the Top 8 in the USA in July 2015. This has been followed by a string of great reviews in magazines such as Classic Rock and Blues in Britain to name but a few. Radio interviews across the UK, USA, Canada and Spain followed.
The success of the Albums and the live performances is down to the fantastic band members and recording Artists , Robert Hart (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band), Steve Overland (FM) , Scott Ralph, Jim Kirkpatrick (FM and Bernie Marsden), Sarah Miller and Kate Robertson (Nearly Dan) and Adrian Gibson , Chris Aldridge (Climax Blues Band) and Mike Yorke.
