Maggie Bell & Dave Kelly *
Maggie Bell and Dave Kelly renewed their partnership in 2016 after a two year lay-off with some selected venues and festivals in the UK and Canada, and will tour the UK again in 2018. They will play just a few select venues.
The on-stage chemistry is immediately apparent, stemming from their love and respect for the music they play as well as the deep knowledge of the genre. Although both coming originally out of blues/soul explosion of the late 1960's their repertoire is far broader than just that. When they first got together in 2007 they both wished to sing 'any song that took their fancy', so the set includes folk, rock, country, gospel as well as blues and soul.
Their stage craft is as would be expected from two professionals with a collective experience of 100 years, but this is no slick show wheeled out with any predictability. Indeed when Maggie and Dave take to the stage 'anything can happen' (and often does). One promoter commented " I don't know how they make such a sound with one guitar and two voices - it sounded like a full band"
