TWO UK SOUL AND FUNK LEGENDS ON ONE FESTIVAL BILL
On Thursday June 18th, the opening night of award winning Festival ‘Blues On The Farm’ – a beautifully appointed, countryside event near Chichester, Sussex, of 24 years standing – features a very special ‘groove’ night featuring an exclusive double bill of two genuine grandees of UK soul and funk.
Hamish Stuart Band
A legendary figure on the UK music scene; Hamish Stuarts resume as a singer, guitarist, bassist, writer and more reads like a ‘who’s who’ of popular music ; ten years frontman for Average White Band in their 70’s/early 80’s heyday (Hamish co-wrote ‘Pick Up The Pieces’), five years in Paul McCartney’s band, plus work with likes of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, George Benson, Dave Sanborn, Quincy Jones, Ringo Starr and many other household names makes Hamish one of the most respected all round musicians ever to come out of the UK. Hamish’s own band is equally accomplished; expect a rare opportunity to see an exciting groove-based set from an all star outfit of the highest quality.
One of the 70’s most revered and respected British Soul pioneers – a band at one time signed to CBS, managed by Pink Floyd’s manager and whose recording sessions included a certain Bob Dylan – Kokomo have now reformed after a considerable hiatus with 7, yes 7!, original members; percussionist Jody Linscott, saxist Mel Collins , the double guitar threat of Jim Mullen and Neil Hubbard and the band’s trademark 3-part vocal front line, all included. The CV’s of the individual members include BB King, Buddy Guy, Rolling Stones, Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, The Who, King Crimson, Bryan Ferry, Joe Cocker – to mention just a few – demonstrating the quality of musicianship on offer.
