Freddie Hall is a singer-songwriter who has travelled and performed in the UK and all over the world. As I write, he is in the middle of a 21 gig tour of the South of France, but will back in time to join us at the end of September.

Singing jazz standards, blues, Motown, and soul music, he has appeared in a variety of venues, ranging from jazz clubs and concert halls to colleges and universities.

Freddie cites his main influences as Nat King Cole; the Temptations with whom he sang in Orlando, Florida; Ray Charles & Van Morrison.

Although Freddie does perform with a band, at Art's Music Lounge he will be singing and accompanying himself on guitar.

In addition we are delighted to have along as support

Little Victor accompanied by Orlando Shearer on upright bass

NEXT EVENT:
Friday 21st OCTOBER 2022

Little Victor

Old-school blues and boogie from multiple award-winning American artist Little Victor aka "The Beale Street Blues Bopper." He'll be turning Shrewsbury House into a Memphis juke joint with a handful of old guitars, lo-fi mics, a few harmonicas, a few slides, a stomp board, a few stories- and help from Orlando Shearer on upright bass. Be there or be square!

The music journalist Johnny Whiteside, writing in the LA (Los Angeles) Times, described Little Victor's style of music:

"Little Victor (is) an untamed maverick whose raw, primitive sounds are the utter antithesis of the contemporary blues model. The offbeat singer-guitarist...eschews the genre’s prevalent trend for streamlined six-string virtuosity in favor of wild shouting, stabbing guitar and heavy, almost hypnotic, rhythmic repetition....He can effortlessly switch from shadowy, primitive low blues to the polished, uptown Beale Street-style R&B...to wild, wicked boogies, and all of it is put across with expressive, soul-deep conviction."
