Fri 23 Mar Music Night with Blake's III


Blakes III" description does not do full justice to the wonderful sounds they conjure up. Martin Blake has been playing guitar and singing since the big Folk-Blues scare of the mid 60s and is still performing regularly today. He started out by playing in pubs and folk-blues clubs and spent a lot of the late 70s and early 80s busking in England and Europe, honing his fingerpicking style by listening to the masters of ragtime blues guitar, such as Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Willie McTell, Blind Blake, Rev Gary Davis et al. He has made myriad musical collaborations on his journey to the present day. In 1983, with friends Rob Strawson and Mick Freeman he formed the eclectic acoustic trio "Blakes III", which still performs today.
