Blues in the Bar with Scott Wainwright ***CANCELLED***

This event is at
The Georgian Theatre Bar


Scott Wainwright is the Barnsley-based bluesman (‘born and bred’ as he’s probably told 
more than one person) who’s not afraid to mangle genres in the most pleasing of manners. 
He’s playing The Georgian Theatre Bar in Stockton on March 29th. 
The Blues? In Barnsley? Surely not? But Scott Wainwright is certainly a man to be reckoned 
with; someone who can rummage around his soul to give us real authenticity just like 
bluesmen of yore. But I doubt even greats such as Robert Johnson could have pulled a bit of 
beatboxing out of their battered hats to enhance their live performances in the easy 
manner of Wainwright. For this is a fella who really manages to enhance his live stuff with 
elements of hip-hop – and folk and gospel and country and maybe even a bit of Beefheart – 
and not afraid to drop a “Stop. Hammertime” when the mood takes him. He’s a great 
raconteur too, down to earth and funny with it, and time spent in his company is never 
time wasted. 
‘Bluesman Scott Wainwright is a one-man tour de force with great slide-guitar, harmonica 
and rasping vocals and his between-song banter, including how he invented hip-hop on his 
allotment is a riot’. NE Volume
