Still going strong more than half a century down the line, few bands boast the blues pedigree of the legendary Savoy Brown.
And in 2019 the Londoners – replete with founder member Kim Simmonds – will co-headline HRH Blues V!
Formed in 1965, Simmonds joined forces with Bryce Portius, Trevor Jeavons, Ray Chappell, Leo Manning and harmonica player John O’Leary to create a blues rock collective that would go on to taste success on both sides of the Atlantic.
And on Sunday April 14 Savoy Brown will star in the Steel City – joining Saturday night headliner Aynsley Lister for a weekend of red hot blues.
Sheffield’s award-winning O2 Academy will host the fifth edition of the 48-hour shindig.
And the city centre venue will also welcome the following big name acts: Climax Blues Band, Chantel McGregor, The Quireboys (blues set), Pontus Snibb’s Wreck Of Blues, Billy Walton Band, Erja Lyytinen, John Verity Band, Gerry Jablonski & The Electric Band, Sam Kelly’s Station House, Xander and the Peace Pirates, Babajack, Gabriella Jones, Henry’s Funeral Shoe, Clare Free, Thr3e, Jack J Hutchinson Band, Hot Tramp, Southbound, Matt Pearce and the Mutiny, Blind Saints.
HRH Blues V offers fans great music with hotels and breakfast included – as well as entrance across the weekend.
