TWO OF Leeds’s finest acoustic acts are to perform in Oxenhope on January 19.

The High Hollers and Joe Kemp can be seen at the monthly Blues & Roots Night at the Bay Horse from 8pm.

Keighley acoustic blues musician Ben Blue Waters recently began the monthly live-music session at the Bay Horse after several years running similar nights in Keighley in Haworth.

The High Hollers have been playing their “foot-stomping, toe-tapping, finger-clicking, cider-swilling” guitar/harmonica music around Yorkshire for the past 10 years.

The audience will hear them lurch through the swamps of blues, country, rockabilly and jugband styles.

Ben said: “From bone-shaking, foot-to-the-floor stompers, to window-down, sun-in-your-face free-wheelers, this is music that moves.”

Singer/songwriter Joe Kemp promises intricate and refreshingly different blue-eyed soul, performed in a powerful and exciting way.

Ben himself will play an opening set of foot-stomping slide guitar blues songs by artists such as Son House, Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker.
