DoubleCross / Blues, Live Music

Fri 11Oct
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished


Andy & Phil appear together as DoubleCross, a Derbyshire based Acoustic Rock & Blues Duo. If it’s Guitar and Harmonica you like there’s a fighting chance we’re in the right place! Andy is a master of the six string thing. Well, he should be, he’s been cutting his chops since the time guitar players were gods. He is a founder member, lead guitar player and vocalist with Derbyshire electric rock outfit Crossroads, who have entertained audiences throughout the county for over ten years. He takes his pleasure in the classic rock oeuvre and you can expect to find inspiration from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clapton and Hendrix in his repertoire. And look out, now he’s got a ukulele too! Phil ‘The Harp’ was given his first harmonica by a blind bluesman in the Netherlands at the age of ten. He grew up listening to his folks’ old John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry and Beatles albums. When he dug that old harp out of the loft a decade later he knew what he wanted to play. After spending a few years sitting in with local artists he formed the Bluesbuskers acoustic duo. When that ran its course Phil and Andy decided it would be fun to go out as a duo doing some of their favourite tunes and DoubleCross was born. We’ve been blowing up a storm playing our versions of some rock and blues classics and some original material. We’re always happy to take requests and if it’s on the list we’ll play it! And remember, the Blues Is The Good News!
