Dave Kelly & Bob Hall with Hilary Blythe
Friends since they were neighbours in the sixties, Dave Kelly & Bob Hall have had illustrious careers in the British Blues Scene and have won many awards for their artistry.
Dave Kelly, singer, guitarist, and songwriter, is a founder member of The Blues Band (which has recently celebrated its 40th anniversary). Dave cut his teeth in the backing bands of Howlin’ Wolf and John Lee Hooker, and has played with Buddy Guy, Son House & Muddy Waters. The Blues Band have released around twenty albums, and Dave has fifteen more either solo or with his own Dave Kelly Band.
Bob Hall, singer, pianist, mandolinist and songwriter, is a founder member of The Groundhogs and Savoy Brown. Bob has also accompanied Howlin’ Wolf and John Lee Hooker and a host of blues stars including Little Walter, Lightnin’ Slim and Homesick James. Bob has played on well over a hundred albums, including four solo piano albums and dozens more as band leader or co-leader.
Complimenting the duo is Hilary Blythe on bass and guitar, an emotive singer of classic blues and Bob’s partner off-stage. A well-known performer on the folk scene, Hilary’s rock-solid bass is also an integral part of the A-Team, accompanying blues legend Lil’ Jimmy Reed on his UK and international tours.
