Ain't That The Truth
The Blues Dukes
The Blues Dukes comprising the ex-road manager, George Nix, of both the Kinks and Lou Reed, plenty of stories there then, along with Colin Booth on Bass guitar and supported by the famous duo of Horse and Hedges comprise this unique quartet of avid and authentic Blues musicians.
Numbers such as Hoochie Coochie Man, Little Red Rooster and Stormy Monday et al all performed in a reverential but funky fusion with an emphasis on style rather than full on volume. The Blues Dukes are musicians of the highest order and we are so fortunate to secure them to perform here at the Duchy of Cornwall Nursery. Aint that the Truth.
