    Thursday 10th August

Crafted over a two-year period following his time on BBC’s The Voice in 2013, mentored by Sir Tom Jones; ‘Ouch!!!’ is a record of the highs and lows, where Ragsy’s distinctive voice tells an honest and impassioned tale of life’s unpredictability.

Sicknote Steve

  • Sicknote Steve 1 2016

    Saturday 12th August

    • Venue: Clarence Inn
    • Time: 3:00pm
    • Info:  I'm assuming here that Sicknote Steve could be a bit like Seasick Steve.  Do you like your blues played on rudimentary instruments and hollered as if your life depended on it? Do you long for the days when Seasick Steve played small clubs and didn’t command such a hefty entrance fee, well if you answered yes to the following couple of questions salvation could be in hand. Whilst stumbling around at Upton Blues Festival, we chanced upon Mr Sicknote Steve, a man who know’s a think about feral howling blues and recreating that authentic Seasick sound.
