Blues Hall of Fame British Legend Norman Beaker & Band
Norman is no stranger to Cumbria and Carlisle. As well as a fantastic show at OFS last Summer he's played the iconic venues of the area both with his own band and when he accompanied Jack Bruce in performances still remembered as some of the finest. He's most honoured to return to perform at the latest venue to joined the ranks of the most legendary venues of the North.
Norman has recently released an album to international acclaim
In January 2017, Manchester native Norman Beaker became only one of eight 21-st century British artists to be officially recognised and inducted as a Legend in the American Heritage Society's Blues Hall of Fame®, alongside Jack Bruce, Peter Green, John Mayall, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton.
Norman is one of those very first artists who with such iconic colleagues as Alexis Korner, Graham Bond helped to create the unique British Blues, R&B and Rock sound that captivated the world.
Norman kept its signature sound alive throughout his distinguished career, whether playing solo or with a Who's Who of blues, soul and rock from both sides of the Atlantic, including Chuck Berry, Jack Bruce, Van Morrison, Peter Green, Buddy Guy, Ruby Turner and B.B. King.
Though known primarily as a bluesman, Norman seamlessly moves among the genres of jazz, rock, pop and R&B with the grace and ease that characterise his performances and original songs.
There aren't many of these gifted first and finest who defined the British Blues genre. Of these rare national treasures who still remain, none serve the music more faithfully than Norman Beaker, whose guitar, voice and original songs are as fresh and powerful as when he first began in the Northern clubs of the '60's...and continue as ageless and enduring as his home city itself.
