Alex started playing harmonica in his native Glasgow at the age of five. Drawn to the black music of soul, R&B and reggae in London in the late 60’s, he soon discovered the blues with acts like Champion Jack Dupree, Mississippi Fred McDowell and Eddie Boyd. In the early 70’s Alex took up the guitar in the Channel Islands before moving to Australia. Since then Alex has played countless venues and major festivals both solo and as a duo with great finger picker Nick Charles. His festival performances range from the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival in Byron Bay, Australia’s biggest blues festival, through to Brisbane’s steel guitar festival, even the famous Edinburgh festival. Alex currently works plying the blues circuit, and continues his illicit affair with Hawaiian styles. Come on down southside on 4th March for some mighty fine blues, backed with those Allstars.

Blues jam from 5:30pm, feature act 7:00pm. FREE ENTRY thanks to the PRINCE and EBC.
