Closing Concert: The Big Jon Atkinson Band  image

Across the American Blues scene there’s no young musician who stands out more as the keeper of the Blues flame in the 21st Century. Jon Atkinson sings; plays low-down and nasty, bottle-neck slide guitar; full on early Chicago style lead; and gut-bucket harmonica. Mid-century electric blues is a specialism, and he plays everything from in the pocket Memphis/Sun covers to wild interpretations of raw post war Chicago gems.
