Siegal and Mathus tour again

Ian Siegal and Jimbo Mathus will team up for a three-month European tour next year, they’ve announced.

It includes 15 UK dates, with appointments in Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Slovenia yet to be announced.

The run follows their first road trip together in 2014, and the duo are gearing up to release a live album recorded on the journey.

Organisers say: “If your musical preference is a combination of rootsy blues and folk Americana, delivered with irreverent humour and nuggets of folklore, then look no further.

“This transatlantic duo of multi-award winners ticks all the boxes, combining the talents of Europe’s leading contemporary Bluesman with the Grammy-nominated songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Mississippi.”

Siegal was this week named Best Vocalist at the European Blues Awards for the third time.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
