Ian Siegal: Unplugged

Ian Siegal: Unplugged


2018 was another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman. He scooped Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA.

For Spring 2019 Ian will tour an unplugged presentation of songs from his latest album ‘All The Rage’ including a beautifully adapted acoustic version of the soul stunner, ‘Sweet Souvenir’.

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.”

While he is known as a bluesman and often seen fronting his electric band, 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. When it’s just man and guitar those qualities shine through even stronger.

Special guest Michael Littlefield, the north east’s rising bluesman and founder of The King Bees, opens the evening with a solo acoustic set. | Facebook | Instagram
