Split Whiskers play the Sunday Afternoon Session

October 31 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Go tell ever’body Split Whiskers are back in town, they got a dollar and a quarter and they’re ready to clown!.
Split Whiskers have their roots firmly planted in Chicago blues, crossing boundaries into rock,
americana and more than a hint of the Delta.
The band’s fame is spreading and they are becoming one of the busiest bands at blues
venues around the UK, in particular in great demand on the Festival circuit.
Their superb musicianship, along with their infectious humour on stage, promises a
great evening’s entertainment
Fronted by Gilby J. Fletcher on vocals & blues harp
Johnny ‘Magic Boy’ Wright on vocals & acoustic, resonator & electric guitars
They are joined by:
Matt Willshaw on keys
Robbie Stewart-Mathews on bass
Rick Hudson on drums
“…Split Whiskers embrace excellence when playing live, the show is a complete experience,
you will leave after feeling refreshed and invigorated by their blues…” BBC Radio
“…must go and see them…” Blues Matters magazine
