The Godfather of British Blues will be serenading fans at The Playhouse in Weston on November 24.

John Mayall has been a pioneer of blues music for more than 50 years and has earned fans all over the world with his mesmerising songs.

Regarded by many as one of blues music’s most influential artists, John’s band The Bluesbreakers launched the careers of some of the greatest music legends including Eric Clapton, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green and Mick Taylor.

Mayall has more than 64 albums under his belt and his songs are still as captivating as ever.

He released his new studio album Talk About That earlier this year, and after five decades in the industry, he is enjoying a revival.

His band includes Rocky Athas on lead, Greg Rzab on rhythm guitar and Jay Davenport on bass and percussion.

John Mayall In Concert will wow blues fans at the theatre in High Street next week, when special guest and long term collaborator, Buddy Whittington, will be joining John on stage.

The talented Texan guitarist is making a welcome return to the UK with The Buddy Whittington Band.

After joining The Bluesbrakers in 1993, he energised the band with his unique and fiery style during live performances.

Buddy made his recording debut on the Spinning Coin album and proved to be more than equal to his illustrious predecessors.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets, priced £31.50-34, are available from 01934 645544 or www.theplayhouse.co.uk

The Weston Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer two lucky readers a pair of free tickets to the show.
