Acoustic blues pioneer Catfish Keith comes to Darwen this October

World-touring acoustic blues pioneer Catfish Keith has established himself as one of the most exciting country blues performers of our time, and this October he’ll be taking to the stage at Darwen Library Theatre.

Catfish’s innovative style of foot-stomping, deep delta blues and American roots music has spellbound audiences the world over.

He has reinvented the guitar with great power and artistry and brings a rare beauty and vitality to his music. Handing down the tradition, Catfish continues his lifelong journey as one of the brightest lights in acoustic blues and roots music.

A three-time Blues Music Award nominee for Best Acoustic Blues Album, both Catfish’s Honey Hole and Mississippi River Blues albums were considered for Grammy Award nominations in three categories.

Catfish has seventeen number one independent radio chart-topping albums to his credit, and packs houses all over the world with his dynamic stage show.

A 2008 inductee into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame, the 40-year veteran has performed thousands of gigs, touring the USA, UK and Europe dozens of times to wide acclaim, headlining major music festivals, and appearing with legends John Lee Hooker, Ray Charles, Robert Cray and many, many others.
