"The Blues has not seen such Good News in quite some time" - Bootsy Collins

The new master of the slide guitar, British singer/songwriter Jack Broadbent has been indelibly marked by the major blues figures he listened to as a child while jamming with his musician father. From rural England to the bustling streets of major cities all over Europe, Broadbent made a name for himself through his incredible improvisational skills while busking, equipped with only a guitar, an amp, and a flask for a bottleneck. A new incarnation of audacious and modern blues, his deeply soulful voice and phenomenal slide guitar licks will deliver a performance that will leave you speechless.
