The Connie Lush Band is Back!

The Connie Lush Band is Back!

“That women makes my heart sing “ -BB King

Connie Lush and her band return to The Atkinson this September after their sell-out show at last year’s Big Blues Festival.

She has been recognised as one of the finest Blues singers in the UK today. The winner of ‘Best Female Vocalist UK’ no less than five times has earned Connie her place in the Gallery of Greats, alongside Alexis Corner and Eric Clapton to name just two.

Her incredible stage presence and powerful vocal have also been recognised overseas as she was twice voted ‘European Blues Vocalist of the Year’ by the Blues Trophies Awards. Again, this year she is up for ‘Best British Female Blues Vocalist’ and ‘Best British Blues Album’ in the British Blues Awards 2016. No wonder then that her two night residency in Music Room last year sold out.

Performing in over 30 countries, Connie has wowed audiences in Europe and from Moscow to LA. Some of the more memorable occasions included: In New York at the famous “Bitter End” Recording at “Cotton Row” Studios Memphis, with the great Teenie Hodges known for his work with Al Green, whom Connie later met at his church.  And of course singing at BB Kings Club, Beale Street, not to mention singing on Hollywood Boulevard…….Then there was Glastonbury.  But most of all for Connie has to be touring UK with the late, great BB king, culminating in a show at the world famous Royal Albert Hall London. Connie herself said “Nervous? I was both nervous and ecstatic at the same time! Not only was I on stage at the Albert Hall, but BB King was listening backstage!”

Connie is also known as a songwriter, DJ and unforgettable performer.  She continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous gusto for life and music wherever she goes!  Blues is her business and business is good!
