Giles Hedley & The Aviators

16th May 2018 @ 8:45 pm – 11:00 pm

Giles Hedley and The Aviators are a funky, danceable roots-blues quartet steeped in Delta and early Chicago blues. Earthy slide, lead and steel guitars, a unique harmonica style, a passionate, Wolf-style voice, adventurous bass and drums right up front in the mix create the unmistakeable Aviators sound – quite unlike other British blues bands.

With Giles singing and adding slide guitars and harmonica, amazing French blues discovery Christophe Pélissié on lead guitar, Sam Kelly of Blues in Britain’s Hall of Fame on drums, and jazz musician, writer and producer Richard Sadler on upright and guitar basses, dazzling rhythmic interplay is a key feature.
