BREWERY BLUES: Friday, February 10, 7.45-11pm+

Brewery Blues at New Brewery Arts, Cirencester, is one of the best live music spots in the area and is drawing top quality performers from far and wide to play in the wonderfully intimate club-style venue in front of an appreciative audience of cross-genre music lovers. If you havent already experienced it for yourself then youre in for a treat with the tremendous line-up on Friday, February 10

Headliners are THE MATT WOOSEY BAND. Now resident in Holland, Matt is one of the most highly regarded young bluesmen on the European circuit youll soon hear why. Matts edgy distinctive Delta-style blues voice and slap acoustic guitar technique are reminiscent of the late great Son House, Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson, as a listen to his latest album All or Nothing will testify. The bands line-up is complete with Adji Shuib on bass and James 'E' Williams on drums. They regularly performer at hot spots like Ronnie Scotts in London and constantly featured on BBC Radio. Blues for grown-ups.

Returning to Brewery Blues are THE ABSTRACTS: New Wavesters from Cambridge. Quirky frontman Felix Morgans individual guitar sound and vocal delivery sits tantalisingly on the rhythm section of Ben Nunns bass and the drums of Mark Thomson. There are undeniable undertones of the Liberitines, the Futureheads, even Joy Division and Morrissey. Creative and entertaining, they are no slouches in the studio either with EPs Calling out for Strangers and Pound Stretcher to their credit.

Bristolian PETE TAYLOR has built a formidable reputation as an energetic contemporary acoustic player with his trademark melodic fretwork and haunting vocals. He was the Winner of BBC Radio Gloucestershires Solo Folk Performer of the Year last year, its easy to hear why - his beautifully rendered original material is the product of a copious talent. Petes recent recording back catalogue includes Faker, Faker, On its Own, Light Up a Life and Warm Red.

Young acoustic soloist MITCH POTTS highlights the ethos of Brewery Blues to provide youngsters in the area with a credible venue to showcase their abilities. This is Mitchs third performance there and each time he just gets better and better. Hes yet another of the rich vein of Gloucestershires home-grown musical talent.
