Saturday 1st September

Honeyboy Hickling Band

Simon "Honeyboy" Hickling, Harp player/Singer/Songwriter.
Harp driven R&B from the very charismatic livewire performer ‘Honeyboy Hickling’ is unbeatable.
Three decades of touring and recording have honed his individual, blistering harp technique and vocal style to earn him an international reputation as a virtuoso player.
He is truly a great front man, singer/harp player but also a damn fine songwriter of catchy quirky roots tunes.
Check out his CD 'Blue it'.
The musical quality of the man can be judged by the company he keeps.
Past credits include three years of touring and recording with Steve Marriott, sharing lead vocals and playing the harp.
Recording with Bo Diddley and playing and recording as a member of Anthony Thistlethwaite's(ex Waterboys) ‘Blue Stars’ - a band featuring Mick Taylor and the ‘Kick Horns’.
He has also toured as a member of ‘Nine Below Zero’ all over Europe.
In 2001, at the London Astoria, he appeared on the Steve Marriott memorial concert alongside Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Midge Ure and many others and performed a show stealing version of Marriotts 'Big Train', now released on CD and soon out on DVD.
