The Latest Music Bar, Brighton gets a visit from one of the rising stars of the blues on Wednesday March 27 at 8pm (tickets 01273 687171)

Spokesman James Soars said: “25-year-old year old Ben Poole is currently being described as the most exciting young blues/roots artist to come out of the UK for a long, long time.

“A talented guitarist, singer and songwriter with obvious blues/rock/soul/R’n’B/country and Pop influences it’s hard to categorise the style and genre of this young man’s music. The past few years has seen Ben Poole’s profile raise far beyond expectation, his name cropping up regularly in Europe’s biggest selling guitar magazine Total Guitar who named Ben as the guitarist to watch out for.

“A Ben Poole Band live show is certainly very energetic and not to be missed.”

Ben was voted Best Newcomer by Blues Matters magazine in their 2011 readers poll, was nominated for three awards at the British Blues Awards in 2011, including Best Young Artist and Best Original Song and represented the UK at the 2012 European Blues Challenge to be held in Berlin in March last year, Ben coming third out of 19 entries from 19 different countries.
