Live Music Lineup
Main Stage, 29 Aug
The UK’s leading contemporary blues artist and multiple award-winner.
Ian Siegal is often called the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman and renegade Americana'man.
Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.”
He is the only Brit to have twice been nominated in the US Blues Music Awards, effectively the Grammys of the Blues. And he is the only Brit to have twice been chosen by MOJO for Blues album of the year.
While he is known as a bluesman it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees!
