IAN SIEGAL

IAN SIEGAL at Bristol SU Live Sun 24 March 2019 from 3.30pm-5pm

2018 was
 another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman and renegade Americana'man. He scooped Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA.


For Spring 2019 Ian will tour an unplugged presentation of songs from his latest album All The Rage including a beautifully adapted acoustic version of the soul stunner, Sweet Souvenir.
Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him  “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.”
While he is known as a bluesman, it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage
in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour,   incendiary   slide   guitar   and   a   soul-infused   voice   big enough to fell trees!

 You can say what you like about students....
 You cannot deny that nothing attracts cool bands like a university student union and Bristol uni is no exception.
Up in one of the prettier parts of Bristol, hidden by some trees is the Anson Rooms, the uni’s live music hall. The venue itself is a big, school like, assembly room with a stage at one end and doors leading to a bar at the side with sensibly priced Drinks.
It is a simple, no gimmicks venue that lets the bands play their music how they want to and the kids jump up and down and scream. You will generally find the indie kids at the front sweating, going crazy and the grown ups at the back enjoying the gig in a more restrained manner.

Almost every Guitar band on their way up has come through the doors. When they were littler, the likes of the White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian and Feeder have all played in this modest 900 capacity venue. A cert to keep your eye on for everyone who loves the NME and the live music scene. It is not only for students, although they do tend to get 'stuck in' the most.
It's an Over 14’s Venue if you're unaccompanied (Ages10 to 13 can go but must be in the company of an adult at all times) and they are safety conscious. Security is tight but not so in your face that it impedes on having a good time.
 
…Oh and really.... You can say what you like about students.
