Maggie Bell, Dave Kelly & The BBQ @ Lincoln Drill Hall

Maggie Bell, Dave Kelly & The BBQ
Lincoln Drill Hall - Wednesday 23 Mar 2011   8pm
Tickets: £15 (£13 concessions)
In 2007 Scottish rock and soul diva Maggie Bell joined forces with The Blues Band’s slide guitar wizard Dave Kelly for some acoustic duo shows. Such was the success of these shows that they decided to pull together a full band including Colin Allen (drums), Zoot Money (keyboards & vocals), Colin Hodgkinson (bass & vocals) and Miller Anderson (guitar & vocals). The result? A mouthwatering review of soul, blues & classics with some thumping rock ‘n’ roll thrown in from a fantastic band with big reputations and fabulous voices. The good times will certainly roll!

Blues Legend Eddie Kirkland Dies In car Crash.

Blues singer Eddie Kirkland has died after his car overturned in Florida. He was 88.
The musician, known as the Gypsy of the Blues, was travelling north of Tampa on Sunday when he tried to make a U-turn in front of a bus and flipped his vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He later died in nearby Tampa General Hospital. No one on the bus was injured.

The blues legend was born in Jamaica and grew up in Alabama before settling in Detroit, Michigan. His career started when he toured with John Lee Hooker before becoming Otis Redding's bandleader. He also played with Little Johnnie Taylor and Little Richard.

Kirkland is survived by his wife Mary and nine children.
