LADY OF THE BLUES JOANNE AT LEAMINGTON ASSEMBLY

JOANNE SHAW TAYLOR - LEAMINGTON ASSEMBLY 2010
Sensational lady of the blues Joanne Shaw Taylor returns to the Leamington Assembly on Thursday 3rd July for what is sure to be another knockout performance, I have seen Joanne grace the Assembly stage 3 times, back in 2009 when she supported the legendary Johnny Winter in May, later the same year when she performed at the Blues Assembly all day event in November and finally in 2010 on the Oli Brown bill.
Since then has released three top quality studio albums, the live CD 'Songs From the Road' and her new album 'The Dirty Truth' is out this September, of course she has also wowed blues audiences up and down the country and overseas with her explosive live performances and her take on the blues.
For me she is up there with the most impressive blues artists I have seen on stage, rich vocals, sensational guitar work and always a top band backing her up, I have loved all her albums from her cracking debut 'White Sugar' (in my all time top 10 debut album list) onwards and really looking forward to the show next week.
Tickets only £15 in advance from the Assembly Box office - www.leamingtonassembly.com
