Twenty-five-year-old Ben Poole is being described as the most exciting young blues/roots artist to come out of the UK in a long time.
A talented guitarist, singer and songwriter with obvious blues, rock, soul, R’n’B, country and pop influences, it’s hard to categorise his music.
With multiple award nominations, he has also won praise from guitar legends Jeff Beck and Gary Moore.
As part of a tour that will see him hit the US and Russia he plays at The Dockyard Club in Onslow Road, Southsea on Thursday.
