Dennis Greaves & Mark Feltham
Nine Below Zero’s founding members, Dennis Greaves and Mark Feltham, get back to their blues roots performing a series of intimate, acoustic concerts as a duo. Covering songs by blues legends such as Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Jimmy Reed, Slim Harpo and Leadbelly, they also play unplugged versions of well-known Nine Below Zero material.
Dennis says ‘with these shows we are really trying to go back to the stripped down simplicity of early blues being played in its rawest form on acoustic instruments. To see Mark perform in this environment is truly a masterclass and it’s a little daunting for me to be playing acoustic guitar. No hiding behind the Marshall amp!’.
Sweet Marta & Blues Deluxe
Marta Suñé is unique in being one of the only female blues harmonica players in Spain. She is from Salt, a village near Girona located in the North-East of Catalonia. She is a passionate blues musician and has gained a prominent position in the performance scene across Europe.
Sweet Marta blows the harp and stomps the stage, delivering fearless, bold chops as she delights audiences throughout the Iberian Peninsula and across Europe. Tonight she is backed by our very own Blues Deluxe trio. Those who witnessed the combo last year with Mark Hummel will know we’re in for another absolute treat.
London-born Martin was weaned on a folk, electric blues and classic rock soup that left him as at home with acoustic as electric instruments and imbued him with deep respect for the music’s Afro-American roots.
A prolific songwriter since the age of 16, his albums have ranged from One-Man-Band to Big Band to Power-Rock trio as he has wrung every drop of inspiration and instrumental technique out of Blues tradition and developed it with his own writing. Eddie will perform solo for us this evening, but don’t be fooled – Eddie’s blues will be delivered at hurricane force.
My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen
Our evening performance takes place in The Brunswick’s main auditorium. Doors open at 7.15pm, and the show commences at 7.30pm. There will be short intervals between acts and our programme finishes at 11.00pm.
Please be aware that seating is limited and cannot be reserved. We will invite any guests requiring mobility assistance or with special medical needs to enter the auditorium first. Thank you to our able bodied guests for your cooperation and understanding. Standing room will be available to the rear of the auditorium.
A little bit of hush
Out of courtesy to our artists, we would ask that any movement in and out of the auditorium during performance time is restricted to breaks between songs or during intermissions.
We would also ask all guests to refrain from conversation while the show is in progress as this is distracting to our performers and prevents others from enjoying the performance. Anyone persisting in voluble conversation during our performance will be requested to continue their discourse in the bar area.
Food and drink
Drinks are permitted in the auditorium, but please restrict your movement to breaks between songs. Food is not permitted in the auditorium during the evening show.
We regret that visitors under 18 years, accompanied or otherwise, are not permitted in our evening performance.
