Keepin the blues alive

Monthly live gigs at the Hawth Crawley


Artists appearing @ the Hawth in 2017

Sari Schorr & the Engine Room "Demolition Man" 16/4/17

I saw the band for the first time at last year's Blues on the Farm, when I introduced them on the main stage. Sari's vocals and Innes Sibun guitar licks blew me away. Off to Scarborough in March to see them again, not to be missed.

Red Butler "Pride & Joy" 28/4/17

The hottest young blues/rock band around featured with the new lineup. They performed as a duo in February supporting Aynsley Lister who jammed with Alex at the Hawth.

Lauren Housley "The Weight" 5/6/17

This is the first joint venture between Crawley Blues and 22o5 promotions, what a band! I saw them first, two years ago, at the London Blues festival @ the O2. Here they cover the Band classic and more than do it justice, check them out.

Giles Hedley & the Aviators "Future blues" 15/6/17

Long awaited return from Giles and the band, with Sam Kelly drums, Richard Sadler bass & the incredible Cristoph Pelisse on guitar. Giles solo or with the band takes you back to the best of the blues and they last graced the stage for Blues under the Sky.

Dave Kelly "How can a poor man stand such times and live"  28/6/17

Rare opportunity to see Dave solo, having appeared earlier in the year with Paul Jones. Dave's distinctive and evocative voice combine with superlative slide guitar, not to be missed.

Lisa Mills "Better than this" 5/7/17

It's been too long since Lisa graced our stage at the Hawth for a solo concert. Her voice is a rare commodity without comparison, if you are unfamiliar with her please check her out on YouTube. This is the second gig in association with 22o5 promotions.
