CONNIE Lush is just one of the Ladies of the Blues coming to Keighley on March 29.

She’ll be performing with her band at the Octagon, Bradford Road, Sandbeds, on a bill that also includes Kyla Brox and Erja Lyytinen

Connie has had an award-winning career lasting more than 20 years, and entertaining audiences in 30 countries throughout the world.

She is regarded as one of the finest blues singers in the UK, five-time winner of Best UK Vocalist, twice European Blues Vocalist of the Year, and she has performed at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals.

She toured the UK with blues legend BB King, culminating in an unforgettable night at the Royal Albert Hall.

In 2014 Connie and Terry Harris, her husband, felt that the time had come to shake things up a little. Terry had produced the last six albums as well as playing bass for Connie since day one.

New blood was needed and came in the form of Roy Martin, whose drumming has been heard with Aretha Franklin, James Morrison and Barclay James Harvest among many others, and guitarist Steve Wright known for his stunning guitar playing alongside his production and mixing with the famous ‘House of Tone’.

The result of this new collaboration, inspired by the enforced absence from touring and a period of re-evaluation, was the album Renaissance.

A spokesman said: “From the opening bars of the brooding Lonely Boy, through the radio-friendly choruses of Blame It All On Me, and the soul of Blue Night to the closing, exquisite reading of the album’s only cover version, Bonnie Raitt’s I Can’t Make You Love Me, Connie Lush expertly demonstrated her new direction.”
