Sample event image Lightnin' Willie is a veteran bluesman with in excess of 20 years' touring experience. He is a songwriter, singer and guitarist in that order, creating a sound that is an irresistible blend of tradition and spontaneous creativity, with a deliciously insidious emphasis on the groove.

Whenever he performs, he packs the floor - his audience can't not dance. He has gone from low down beer joints to becoming a staple on the international circuit here and abroad, with wild stops along the the way - from London's Royal Albert Hall Igniter Series to Willie Nelson's infamous Fourth of July Picnic, where he appeared alongside Paula Nelson, Willie, Bob Dylan and Leon Russell.

Willie and the Poor Boys have toured the US and Europe for over 20 years, making him the relaxed, confident and seasoned performer.

Known as "The Biggest Little Band On Earth", seize your opportunity to see him live at the Old Town Hall.

Running time: Approximately one hour and 40 minutes.
