The next Music Night at Sunbury Cricket Club is on Friday 21st when the Club welcomes the great bluesman PAPA GEORGE, playing at the Club for the first time with his own band.

Singer and guitarist Papa George is one of the great British blues troubadours, who has been a fixture on the club and festival circuit since the 1970s, and is sufficiently renowned to have been inducted into the Blues Hall Of Fame in the USA. He will be appearing with bass player Pete Stroud, well-known at the club from his appearances with Bad Influence, and, extraordinarily, a drummer also called Pete Stroud, formerly with Sassafras, who has played at the Club with Paul Cox, and is also a member of The Foundations.

Muddy Waters’ guitarist Bob Margolin called George “A powerful deep blues player….a spectacular blues artist. He’s got power and nuance as a master entertainer”. Broadcaster Bob Harris says George plays “electric blues at its very best”. There’s more information at www.papageorge.co.uk.

George has appeared at the Club before with The Barnes Blues Band, but it’s a welcome and long overdue debut at the Club for him with his own band, and one not to be missed. This is the last Music Night before we have a break during the summer so we look forward to seeing you to make the most of this one.

Admission is £10.00 on the door, payable by cash or card. Hot food, prepared by the expert chefs from our resident caterers from the community food distribution organisation Surplus To Supper, will be available from 6pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
