Thursday 16th February 2017 at 7.30pm. Doors and Cafe/Bar Opens at 7pm
The second in this seasons regular Blues Underground events at the UGT. Taking place on the third Thursday of every month. All tickets £5
Originally from Lancashire, the enigmatic Jim Crawford now resides on the North Devon coast. A shy and retiring man who readily admits that recording studios fill him with dread and that he’d rather go fishing with his dog for company, has, none the less, toured much of Europe and the U.S.A captivating audiences with his intimate folk/blues style.
Softly spoken, Jim totally surprises his audience when he breaks into song with, as one reviewer put it ” A richness of voice you can only be born with.” and for years has been revered among professional musicians as a consummate finger picker and slide guitarist.
He first came to the attention of a wider audience when invited to record a session for the BBC’s Paul Jones Show. Jim has finished his new solo album “Roots & Originals” which is available along with his previous albums “Blues Boy” and “When the Rains Came”.
