Featuring guest artists Little Moaner and the Juke Joint Shakers, the Ladies of London blues are going to throw down quite the party. There will of course be space for dancing, and space for drinking and chilling to if dancing isn’t your jam.
A one-woman tune-boutique, MissEllie has evolved into something of a solo-jam powerhouse, supplying hand-crafted blues from the ivories for parties all over Europe.
Since her official solo debut at Fair City Blues in Dublin 2015, she’s played late night sets in Bristol, collaborated with singers Little Moaner and Catt Turney, and worked with This year she’s recording her first solo EP.
From trad classics to modern takes on old songs right the way through to entirely new danceable nonsense, she’s as ready as a rusty juke-joint juke-box to be everyone and anyone’s cup of blues-tea. Expect some singing, some dancing, slow grooves, new songs and some special guests on top of the old standards.
