Blues & Boogie June Jamboree featuring Greg Izor, Al Brown, Spider MacKenzie & Friends plus support from Alana Wyness
Local musician Spider MacKenzie is hosting a Blues and Boogie Jamboree this June.
It’s going to be something of a blues harmonica showdown! A one off, special event that you don’t want to miss. We are very fortunate to have my pal Greg Izor from Austin Texas, USA visit us. I have taken this opportunity to put together a show featuring Greg and Al Brown. Al is arguably the finest blues guitarist in Scotland today, if not in the UK.
Greg and Al will be backed by some very tasty musicians. It’s going to be a night to remember with a number of surprise guests sitting in. To top it all, Aberdeen’s own blues songstress and singer/songwriter Alana Wyness will kick off the evening. Oh did I say I will be playing also? Well sure, I am. I wasn’t going to miss this chance to play with some of my favourite musicians in the world. Come on down to The Blue Lamp to join in the fun!
