We are thrilled to be hosting local celebrity, blues singer Roger Hubbard, in our Tap Bar as part of Rye Ban Scallop Week. Roger is one of the major exponents of early blues and slide guitar. In December 1970 Roger opened for Muddy Waters in Brighton.Muddy Waters was quoted in SOUNDS Magazine as saying, “Roger Hubbard is as good as any blues guitarist in the U.K. or the United States”.
Sunday 3rd March from 4:00-6:00pm. Entry is free.
“..He could be one of the most exciting acoustic guitarists to come along since John Fahey. Whatever he does, he has created in this record
a sort of monument to the full flowing of white blues scholarship…” Timothy Ferris (editor) ROLLING STONE February 1972.
