Autumn 2015.... Double bill tour and French Festivals
Autumn 2015 saw KING SIZE SLIM go on the road in Northern UK with Skip 'little axe' McDonald. Taking in LIverpool Philharmonic and Manchester's legendary 'Band On the Wall' amongst other northern venues. The Double Bill package was received brilliantly by audiences throughout the two week run. More tours with this package are planned for 2016, taking in South-West and Midlands UK and Belgium/Holland.
Leading into winter KING SIZE SLIM made appearances at Festival Be-Bop in Le Mans and also Festival Blues-Sur-Seine in and around Paris. Following the attacks in Paris just a few days before Blues Sur Seine had enormously tight security and audiences were down on last year. However the shows were good with the general school of thought being 'we are not afraid'.
The remainder of 2015 will see KING SIZE SLIM performing solo shows across the South and another return to France for an exclusive solstice set in the Heart of Brittany.
July 2015 SUMMER FESTIVAL SEASON in full swing
Midway through summer festival season 2015 and heres the latest review of the KING SIZE SLIM solo set at ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL of BRITAIN....taken from efestivals.co.uk........
" In my view though, King Size Slim gave the standout performance of the weekend. His fat roots boogie sound just blew me away. One man and a steel resonator guitar which he worked mercilessly to produce an irresistible groove to back his big bluesy voice. Hard for any audience to resist, and in the confines of the Festival's compact third stage – the Solar Powered Big Top – it was overwhelming. People sang and stomped along joyously. Slim responded by unplugging and doing his thing old school style, without amplification, which took the whole experience up another level. Judging by audience reaction and the queue for his CDs, I wasn't the only one to feel the set fill my heart and touch my soul. This was the real deal, authentic acoustic roots music."
