Ben Waters, Saturday 15 July HADCAF

ben waters

Saturday 15 July 8:00pm at John O’Gaunt School

In a twenty five year career in which he has established himself as one of Europe’s supreme boogie piano players, Ben Waters creates a rollicking sound influenced by the rock and roll greats. And he has toured and recorded with most of them. The legends in his diary include Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Jools Holland, Shakin’ Stevens, PJ Harvey, Bobby Womack, Paul Weller, Dave Gilmore and Dave Stewart . Such stellar credentials mean that he gets to hand–pick his group of fine musicians to entertain audiences around the world His recording work with Ray Davies led the Kinks front man to proclaim Ben’s band as one of his favourites for the Meltdown Festival he curated. Hats off to the organisers of HADFEST for bagging such a class act.

Tickets cost £15.00 and are available from the Box Office in Newbury Building Society, Hungerford, by telephone on 01488 684038 or by going online at www.hungerfordartsfestival.com to purchase with no additional booking fee.
