Local harmonica wizard Steve, and rock, blues, slide and ragtime guitarist Chris Newman are the duo Hot Lips and Chilli Fingers, they are joined by bassman Fabian Bonner and drummer Mark Russell.
Fabian has recently returned to fulltime work with several bands in the UK after extensive international touring with Mark. From Rock and Roll to Ragtime, Fabian's superb funky blues playing and huge enthusiasm add life and drive to the HOT LIPS & CHILLI FINGERS line up.
Writer, producer and innovative drummer Mark Russell adds a North American ‘frame' drum to the available options. With drumming described by Charles Shaar Murray as ‘sensational', he has headlined festivals in Canada for audiences of 8,000 and recorded numerous albums, including the last album recorded by the late great Ewan MacColl.
They will take you on a seamless roller coaster ride through traditional music, presenting an eclectic mix of original and cover songs (Blues, roots and Jazz) from the last 80 years. Expect some spice!
