Legendary blues singer/guitarist with two fine Indian musicians

Venue: St. Andrew's Church, Grinton

Michael Messer - vocals, slide & lap steel guitar

A unique collaboration between an innovative British blues guitarist, a Hindustani slide guitar maestro from India, and a London-based tabla master.

Together they have created an exciting and highly accessible fusion of blues and Indian classical music - a fascinating musical journey running from the banks of the Mississippi, via London and Mumbai, to the Ganges delta. Don’t miss it!
