Fresh from a fantastic appearance on “Later… with Jools Holland”, blues-rock guitar virtuoso, vocalist and songwriter Joe Bonamassa will be headlining GuilFest’s Ents24 Stage on Saturday 11th July. Joe is widely renowned everywhere for his insanely fluid phrasing and post-modern fusion of electric British blues, traditional Delta blues and rock ‘n roll chops. Proclaimed "The New King of Blues" by Guitarist Magazine, by the time he was twelve Joe was touring with blues legend B.B King, which led to opening slots for many other stars including Buddy Guy, Foreigner, George Thorogood, Robert Cray, Stephen Stills, Joe Cocker and Gregg Allman. Beatles promoter Sam Leach compared the first time he saw Joe to his initial glimpse of the Fab Four at the Cavern Club – “I got that same feeling of excitement…Joe is the premiere Blues/Rock artist on the planet.”
All of Joe’s albums have either hit No 1 or gone Top 10 on the Billboard blues Chart, and Joe’s new album, “The Ballad Of John Henry” will coincide with his twentieth year as a professional musician and what promises to be an awe inspiring performance at GuilFest.
Australian Drum and Bass Kings Pendulum will be headlining the Funky End Dance Tent, playing a DJ set with MC Jakes on Saturday 11th July. Pendulum have taken the world by storm since they appeared in 2002, touring the world with their instantly recognisable sound, meanwhile releasing two critically acclaimed albums – the first, “Hold Your Colour” achieving double gold status and the second “In Silico” achieving gold status and hitting the number 2 spot in the UK album charts. Pendulum will definitely have The Funky End rocking on Saturday night at GuilFest 2009.
