The Big Blues Tribe
Following a terrific first visit to Bromyard last year we welcome the return of The Big Blues Tribe, a full nine-piece blues band in the style of BB King, Ray Charles and, more recently, Jools Holland’s R&B Orchestra. With a five piece brass section and four excellent voices, the Big Blues Tribe brings good-time big band blues to life.
Fronted by Oliver Carpenter, one of the Midlands most experienced blues singers, and featuring top musicians on every stand, the band – regulars on the UK festival circuit - combines musical quality with an infectious sense of fun and a 100% commitment to blues music from the first shuffle to the last jump.
“This is a hell of a band…. certain to blow your socks off ….. one of the greatest singers we’ve produced.” - Blues in Britain magazine, March ‘07
