Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
Ukulele maestro PHIL DOLEMAN is back with his musical sparring partner IAN EMMERSON, and they're in fine form!
 
Old-time, good-time, ragtime blues from Phil and Ian, featuring the songs of blues, jazz, jug band and hokum legends such as Blind Blake, Jelly Roll Morton, The Mississippi Sheiks, Robert Johnson, Blind Boy Fuller and more. Between them they have over 30 years gigging experience, touring all over the UK and venturing into Europe and the US, in venues ranging from tiny clubs to huge festival stages.

Their almost telepathic tightness and groove makes it hard not to tap your feet, and their song choices are designed to raise a smile. If you think that blues is all about misery, these two will change your mind!

'...some of the best music I’ve heard in a long time.' Dan Phelps, US Delta blues artist
