Saturday 6th August
Go tell ever'body Split Whiskers are back in town, they got a dollar and a quarter and they're ready to clown!.
"...Split Whiskers embrace excellence when playing live, the show is a complete experience,you will leave after feeling refreshed and invigorated by their blues..." BBC Radio
"...must go and see them..." Blues Matters magazine
Split Whiskers have their roots firmly planted in Chicago blues, crossing boundaries into rock, americana and more than a hint of the Delta.
The band’s fame is spreading and they are becoming one of the busiest bands at blues venues around the UK, in particular in great demand on the Festival circuit.
Their superb musicianship, along with their infectious humour on stage, promises a great evening’s entertainment
