Blues concert on Karlshamn's square.
BeskrivningBritish blues rock guitarist Mick Clarke will headline the Karlshamn Baltic Festival Blues Night on Friday 19 July 2019.
Mick has become an established name on the international touring scene and has played regularly in Europe, Asia and the USA. Praised for his fiery "straight from the wood" guitar and slide sound, Mick is the winner of the 2014 Artist Aloud Awards "Best International Act" and has appeared recently on festivals all over Europe, including last year's Sweden Rock Festival, as well as events as far apart as Bosnia-Herzegovina and India. His new album "Steppin' Out" was released in January 2019.
Mick began his career with Killing Floor part of the British blues boom of the late 60s, contemporaries of Free, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. The band backed Texas blues guitar star Freddie King and toured with legends Howlin' Wolf and Otis Spann. Two albums were released - the first, "Killing Floor" is one of Classic Rock Magazine's "20 greatest British blues albums 1967-1970".
The Mick Clarke Band originally started working around the London area in the early 80s, but quickly received offers of work from mainland Europe and the United States. The Southern California Blues Society called him "One of the finest blues players to come out of England". Mick has since released twenty solo albums.
At Karlshamn Mick will feature his regular line-up of CHRIS SHARLEY on drums (ex Sassafrass) Eddie Masters on bass and Dave Lennox on keyboards, (ex Blodwyn Pig, Ginger Baker Band). With a combination of originals and rock blues standards, the band always delivers the goods.
