Used Blues are a Rhythm ‘n’ Blues band from Glasgow. The guys are returning for their third year at the festival and will be playing in their favourite slot of 3 pm on Saturday afternoon
Guitarist Ian Burnside first shared a stage with fellow guitarist Jim Gardner when they both performed at the Kings Theatre,Glasgow in Rhys Chathams “100 Guitars – An Angel Moves Too Fast To See” which won the Spirit of Mayfest award.
Used Blues is now in it’s 4th incarnation. As the name suggest the tunes aren’t new, from the Chicago Blues of Buddy Guy the Delta Blues of BB King to the contemporary sounds of Jonny Lang and Tom Waits but that doesn’t mean there’s nuthin’ original about this band!
As well as Scotland’s Top Festivals they’ve gigged across Scotland but it was supporting UK Blues Guitarist sensation Danny Bryant in their native Glasgow that brought them to the attention of Rock DJ Legend Tom Russell and leading UK Blues mag Blues Matters.
