July 19th @ The Blues Bar

By James Wheeler

The Blues Bar returns next Thursday with Giles Hedley & The Aviators taking the stage at 8.30pm. Doors open at 7pm with admission £8.

Giles Hedley & The Aviators are a funky, danceable roots-blues quartet steeped in Delta and early Chicago blues. Earthy slide, lead and steel guitars, a unique harmonica style, a passionate, Wolf-style voice, adventurous bass and drums right up front in the mix create the unmistakeable Aviators sound - quite unlike other British blues bands.

With Giles singing and adding slide guitars and harmonica, amazing French blues discovery Christophe Pélissié on lead guitar, Sam Kelly of Blues in Britain's Hall of Fame on drums, and jazz musician, writer and producer Richard Sadler on upright and guitar basses, dazzling rhythmic interplay is a key feature.

But the mood of the song always come first! This band is not about tedious displays of technique - it's about communicating true blues feeling.

Featured three times on Paul Jones's BBC Radio blues show, repeatedly at UK and French blues festivals and at countless blues venues over the last thirty years, Giles Hedley is rightly described by Blues in Britain magazine, as a mainstay of British blues.
