8:00 PM

Note: This event has finished

 

 

BabaJack is an acoustic blues/roots band that is fast becoming one of the most sought after bands on the roots, acoustic and blues festival circuits in the UK and they are moving into Europe.  Their sound is ‘infused with blues, but not limited by it’ (ElectricGhost) and combines the powerful roots percussion and vocals of Becky Tate, the slide style and growling ‘winebox’ guitars and rack harp of Trevor Steger and they are joined by Marc Miletitch on double bass.  And they groove!

BRITISH BLUES AWARDS 2012 – Runners up BEST ACOUSTIC ACT and Becky Tate WINNER INSTRUMENTALIST OF THE YEAR!

Trevor and Becky are the songwriting core of BabaJack. They completely co-write all their material. Their sound is influenced by the early blues ethos of playing homemade instruments:  the semi-acoustic ‘winebox’ guitars, the Becky’s cajon (box drum) and the stomp were all made by Trevor.

In 2011 they signed to KrossBorder Rekords for the release of the ROOSTER album – released on 5th March 2012.

The ROOSTER album was recorded at Twin Peaks Studio with reknowned producer Adam Fuest, and has had great critical acclaim from the folk, roots, blues and rock press. It has been played extensively throughout the UK, and in Europe, Australia and the USA.

It follows their highly acclaimed 2nd album Exercising Demons (Top albums of 2010 for Bluesmatters and Blues in Britain Magazines) released in 2010. Their 1st album, The Maker, was released in Dec 2009.

They are currently working on a 4th Album which is planned for release in 2013…
