Jenna Hooson - Hebden Bridge Blues Festival 2012
Unsurprisingly, the Women of The Blues night was one of the most eagerly anticipated of the Festival and they delivered - and some. Then Hooson nearly burned down the Picture House. Never has front lady Jenna Hooson been on better form. The understated Richard Kershaw is one of those rare guitarists who can do it all but in such a subtle way that you are hardly aware he has got all the good notes – and the Hooson backline is as solid as a titanium rock. Audience on its feet, dancers throwing shapes and cries for more. From Janice Joplin roar to self-penned love blues 'Every Now And Then' - what else can you ask. No wonder this band is rocket-powered upwards in the business.....why has no-one signed them up?
