RICK PAYNE : 8pm

Rick Payne's magical, incandescent touch has earned him numerous accolades over the years and has resulted in main stage and headline appearances at blues, folk, jazz and classical festivals, tours to USA, Europe, Scandinavia and India, and commissions for prime time BBC TV programmes and an American film. His intricate finger picking and soaring slide have audiences captivated as he draws every nuance out of every note and covers the whole gamut of blues styles and much more.
His latest CD, Radio City Blues, has received acclaim from Martin Celmins [biographer to Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac], Martyn Joseph, Mike Harding, Johnny Coppin and many others from as far afield as USA , Europe, Russia and Australia
Reviewers have described his concert performances as 'heart wrenching and passionate, delicate and scorching, seriously brilliant, totally absorbing and spellbindingly evocative with raw and fiery vocals to match and, Impressive guitar playing; bears comparison with early Ry Cooder'
