Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Lincoln Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival 3 will be taking place at The Engine Shed on Sunday 15th May 2016!
Stan Webb's Chicken Shack - Corky Laing plays Mountain – Stevie Nimmo Trio - Albany Down - Red Butler - The Rainbreakers
As this is our third year in Lincoln, we wanted to showcase the quality of live music in the UK and present a line-up with at least one legendary name, a mix of blistering new talent............plus a surprise or two. We think we have achieved this, and with Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack headlining, Corky Laing adding a transatlantic flavour and four other top class acts; this will most definitely be a festival to remember and one not to miss!
Since those heady days of the late sixties a further fifteen albums have been released together with numerous compilations proving that Stan, really is "The Man". As the '60's have given way to the '70's; '80's and '90's, Stan Webb and Chicken Shack show no sign of slowing down, continually touring the U.K. and Europe to packed houses and rave reviews. In 1997 Stan received the Blue Heart Award for services to Blues in Germany, the previous recipient had been BB King, a glowing testament to Stan Webb and his on-going love of playing the blues.
Throughout a distinguished career Stan Webb has played and recorded with the very best, including, Stevie Wonder, Howling Wolf, Taj Mahal, Peter Green and Canned Heat, whom he joined on guitar for a U.K. tour following the departure of the bands guitarist............what else is there to say!
This year's full line-up comprises of:
Stan Webb's Chicken Shack - Stan's blistering guitar style matched with a huge stage presence have made Chicken Shack a firm favourite of rock and blues fans everywhere!
Corky Laing plays Mountain – legendary Mountain drummer, songwriter, singer and raconteur, Laurence “Corky” Laing a native of Montreal Canada, is back on the road...........thankfully!
Stevie Nimmo Trio - as one half of Scotland’s highly respected ‘Nimmo Brothers’, Stevie Nimmo has been a well known and respected figure throughout the blues and roots world for over 20 years!
Albany Down - stripped-down-to-the-waist no nonsense rock and roll with a bit of rhythm & blues and jazz-funk to mix it up, with a vintage heartfelt sensitivity and contemporary aggressive energy!
Red Butler - winning the UK Blues Challenge in 2015, this year will see the band represent the UK in competition with 20 other European countries, at the 6th European Blues Challenge in Italy!
The Rainbreakers - while recalling elements of their predecessors, the band has a clear foothold within the sounds of their own generation and strive to craft a melting pot of musicianship!
With this calibre of artist stepping on stage, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a creative mix of Blues, Rock and R & B, with a contemporary take on one or two classic songs!
Plenty of general admission seating available.
