Blues enthusiasts, live music lovers and aspiring musicians across the country are in for a very special treat, when Connie, Kyla and Erja embark of their nine date UK Tour in March 2018.  They will be appearing at The Atkinson in Southport on Friday 30th March, the final show of their tour; so it’s going to be a very special night indeed!

Connie Lush grew up in Liverpool and was singing in her church and school choirs from the age of five.  Regarded as one of the finest blues singers in the UK, five-time winner of best UK vocalist and twice European Blues vocalist of the year.  She has performed at some of Europe’s most prestigious festivals, wowed audiences from Moscow to LA and toured the UK with the late great BB King culminating in an unforgettable night at the Royal Albert Hall.  After over 20 years of her award-winning career, entertaining audiences in 30 countries throughout the world, Connie Lush has arrived at a new beginning.  You can have a look and listen to Connie on YouTube singing “I Don’t Say Goodbye” at youtu.be/5LCVM93mReM

As BB King said “That woman makes my heart sing”

Kyla Brox was born in Lancashire in 1980 and was exposed to the passion of Afro-American music at first-hand from her blues singing father, Victor.  Her voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer’s art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old.  Whether fronting the mighty Kyla Brox Band, or harnessing undiluted soul power in a duo with musical and life partner Danny Blomeley, Kyla is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.  You can have a look and listen to Kyla on YouTube singing “If You See Him” at youtu.be/qjIe9H1Uh6Y

“An authentic soul diva… sensitive, sexy, and with infinite reserves of sassiness” – City Life

Erja Lyytinen was born into a musical family in the town of Kuopio, Finland and quickly emerged as an artist to watch in her native country.  Since first setting foot in a recording studio 15 years ago, Erja has become a bona fide star in her homeland and a celebrated fixture on the international music scene.  She has recorded nine studio albums in locations as diverse as Helsinki, Memphis and Clarksdale, Mississippi, earning numerous awards and honours along the way.  She is equally at home in traditional and modern blues and has never been afraid to incorporate styles like jazz, pop and soul.  You can have a look and listen to Erja on YouTube singing “Stolen Hearts” at www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiOwOaTSnas

In  2017 Erja won a European Blues Award for “Best Guitarist”

Words alone cannot convey what’s in store for the audience; the only way to truly experience this is by seeing them live; singularly superb…………..but all three on the same bill, “blues music has never sounded……or looked so good”
