Some time ago, The Hat described Ron Sayer as one of the blues world's worst kept secrets. Even though he is well known to fans across the country, The Hat insists that he should be a household name both nationally and internationally. Here is a song-writer, a quite sublime and gifted blues man, a smooth operator who is able to throw some jazzy rock blues - even swing - into his set alongside crowd-pleasing modern blues - seemingly without effort - and he gave us the lot in this feelgood main stage performance. Intelligent and articulate music.
With the talented Charlotte Joyce adding vocals and keyboard this was a tight smart set and it is no wonder that Ron is nominated in no less than four categories in this year's British Blues Awards.
