Prospect Music presents

Lil’ Jimmy Reed, Bob Hall & Hilary Blythe

Fri 08 Jun, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £14 (£12 Concessions) , approx running time: 120mins (including interval)

From shot-gun shack and cotton-field to festival main stage, the prodigious talents of Lil’ Jimmy Reed have taken him a long way from the Mississippi river. One of the last surviving
performers of classic Louisiana down-home blues, Lil’ Jimmy’s stinging guitar work, gritty vocals and haunting harmonica have been taking Europe by storm.

His music has won him many awards and in 2014 he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. He is accompanied on piano by Bob Hall, widely regarded as the UK’s finest blues and boogie exponent, and by the diminutive dynamo Hilary Blythe on rock steady bass.
