"A new 4 track EP from the Sunderland blues legend and his band"
‘What a great voice this man has got....this is one of the best straightforward blues albums I HAVE EVER HEARD.... a fantastic voice, great musicianship, tasteful, yet creative arrangements of wonderful classic blues songs.'
First performed publicly while at college in 1970, at the college folk club and he went on to be an important member of the North East Folk Club circuit for over 15 years as performer and organizer. This involvement resulted in George establishing himself as one of the outstanding blues performers in the region, including supporting American blues legends Doctor Ross, Dave ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards, Cousin Joe Pleasant, George GP Jackson, Eddie ‘Guitar’ Burns, as well as British legends Jo-Anne and Dave Kelly and Isaac Guillory. He replaced Ray Stubbs in Pigmeat in the late ‘70s, and played with the band for two years. In the early ‘80s George teamed up with local blues harmonica hero, Jim Bullock and formed the seminal blues duo ‘The Biscuit Kings’. After playing throughout the North East for nearly ten years the duo broke up and George went on to form the George Shovlin Band.
