Bluesman Ian Siegal Returns to Bury with New Band

Multiple British Blues Award winner Ian Siegal returns to The Met with new band, The Siegal Electric Band, on Friday 22 November at 8pm.

.

Ian Siegal is the hot-tip of everyone from Mojo to Classic Rock, a bluesman who slips between continents, eras and expectations. Recent years have seen him receive several British Blues Awards and two consecutive nominations for Contemporary Album of the Year in the Blues Music Awards.

 

“Siegal is the cleverest writer and most magnetic performer of blues in the UK.” - MOJO

 

Ian’s last performance at The Met in July 2012 was recorded by the BBC for the Manchester Bluesfest. The twenty-minute recording has since been broadcast twice on BBC Radio 2.

 

On this visit to The Met he is joined by a new group of musicians, The Siegal Electric Band, hailing from Holland where they’re collectively known as The Rhythm Chiefs.

 

Tickets to see the Ian Siegal and The Siegal Elictric Band perform live are £16 seated or £14 standing. For more information or to book tickets phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
