BLUESMAN Oli Brown brings his unique sound to the Citadel next Saturday.

At the tender age of 21, Brown has already picked up a loyal following as well as a host of fans among blues royalty.

Not bad for a young man who picked up his first guitar aged 12 but was touring America by the age of 16.

He has opened for noted performers such as Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Taj Mahal, and shared UK stages with Walter Trout, Paul Jones, Buddy Whittington and even the Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall.

Such hallowed connections only serve to reaffirm the belief, that for many, Oli is the most promising bluesman to emerge from Britain in a long time. Not only a guitar prodigy but also a singer, songwriter and consummate performer.

Brown has been praised for his total dedication to the genre he loves and was recented voted ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ and ‘Young Artist of the Year’ at the British Blues Awards.
