The Blueswater - Award Winning Rhythm and Blues

The Blueswater UK Tour (Ipswich)
Award winning rhythm and blues band The Blueswater will be making their debut in Ipswich.

The Blueswater is an award winning, Edinburgh based band that tours internationally. Influenced by gritty, old-school rhythm and blues they blend the Chicago sound of Chess records with the earthy, droning grooves of Mississippi to create a style that is truly unique. Thick guitar riffs and frenzied harmonica solos are built around driving rhythms to create raucous, high-energy performances.

In 2011, they premiered their show BLUES! At the Edinburgh Fringe to great acclaim, and in 2012 received a Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award. The show, a musical history of the blues genre, now regularly tours across the UK.

'Edinburgh act The Blueswater have built a solid reputation in blues circles, both in Scotland and further afield.' - The Scotsman

'Definitely a band to watch!' - Blues in Britain

'Terrific set of blues songs performed with zest and wit. Great night out.' - Ian Rankin
