8.30pm, £2

Adam Sweet plays a unique blend of blue-eyed blues and soulful southern rock. Taking his cue from the sweet sounds of Little Feat and the Allman Brothers, married to the driving guitar style of Rory Gallagher and the British blues boom sounds of Free and early Fleetwood Mac, he’s carved out a territory between Nashville and the classic rock riffs of the 60s and 70s. With an expressive vocal style, expertly piercing guitar work and growing song-writing credits, Adam plays some of the most compelling blues-rock in the UK.

Whether out front driving his new power trio, the Adam Sweet Band, or through his acclaimed acoustic shows, he belongs to a new generation of young British blues players who are bringing energy and excitement to an established genre.

His debut album "Small Town Thinking” garnered 5 star reviews and was praised for offering a “whole new perspective on the blues genre”. His latest release, "Take Your Time”, is a stripped back acoustic affair that perfectly captures the essence of his solo shows and displays his increasing skill and confidence as a song-writer.

Performing here at the B-Bar in solo acoustic format Adam will feature material from these previous releases as well as songs from his forthcoming new album.

"Adam Sweet's one of those undiscovered talents that, if there were any justice, would have been swept up by Jools Holland's researchers long ago."
