Best bluesman on IW

Friday, January 18, 2013 - 10:15

MUSIC AWARD-winning bluesman Marcus Bonfanti is set to play an Island gig and talk to young musicians.
Marcus plays Quay Arts, Newport, on Friday, February 1, as part of his 24-date UK tour, performing songs from his third studio album.
He will also be a guest speaker at Platform One’s music industry seminar, with students from Platform One music college, who are on a BA (Hons) degree course in commercial music.
Hailed as being at the forefront of the young British blues revival, Bonfanti is fast building a reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK live circuit.
He has won best songwriter of the year and runner-up male vocalist and acoustic guitarist at the British Blues Awards 2012.
Bonfanti is best known for his high energy live shows with his three-piece band but he will travel the UK solo in February to promote this new album through a set of intimate gigs.
Support comes from Island musician Nick Cane, who will start the evening with acoustic blues, accompanied by Denzil McNeelance on saxophone.
