Ben last performed here in a double header with Stevie Nimmo in 2016 and now he is back with his own headline show!
When you hear comments such as the above from some of the greatest guitar players ever, some of the most respected blues/rock/soul artists in the world today, and some of the leading magazines and radio presenters in Europe, you just know that they have heard something very special. Twenty-eight year old Ben Poole is currently being described as one the most exciting young Rock, Blues & Soul artists to come out of the UK for a long, long time!
Time Has Come’ was not only the title of Ben Poole’s previous studio album – but also the consensus of the press, punters and star players who have caught this British gunslinger on his rise from hot-tip to headline act. Now having just finished a 140 date, 19 country tour of his latest and highly anticipated album ‘Anytime You Need Me’, it appears things are only going from strength to strength with this now well established Blues, Rock & Soul guitarist, singer and songwriter.
