Aynsley Lister’s ‘Eyes Wide Open Tour’ at The Atkinson

Aynsley Lister’s ‘Eyes Wide Open Tour’ at The Atkinson

Award-winning blues-rock aficionado Aynsley Lister performs at The Atkinson this December as part of his ‘Eyes Wide Open Tour’ following the release of his eighth studio album on Straight Talkin’ Records.

The new album is a bold, confident and accessible slice of contemporary blues-rock that promises to bring Aynsley yet more accolades as well as introduce his genre-blending sound to a new audience, building on the 100,000 albums he’s already sold worldwide.

Peter Green, Albert King and Eric Clapton were the musical giants influencing the young ears of Aynsley Lister while he was growing up. Aynsley has created his own unique perspective on contemporary blues since he first formed a band aged 13 and released his self-titled debut in 1998 on Ruf Records.

The journey has seen Aynsley play with, amongst others, Buddy Guy, John Mayall and Lynyrd Skynyrd and win multiple awards including Guitarist of the Year at the 2015 British Blues Awards and was nominated in the Guitarist and Male Vocal categories in the 2016 British Blues Awards.

Eyes Wide Open sees Aynsley confidently pursuing his own musical path. Self-assured, inventive and richly textured, he brings his 18 years of hard touring, 11 album releases (eight studio and three live) and all his experience as a musician to fruition.

Catch Aynsley at The Atkinson on Saturday 15 December from 8pm.
