Liam Ward Band
Bringing you award-winning Chicago R&B guaranteed to banish your blues!
Dance the night away to classics from blues harp great like Little Walter Jacobs, Sonny Boy Williamson, Big Walter Horton, Junior Wells, Kim Wilson, Jason Ricci and Carlos del Junco. Get your mojo working with the epic harp-driving sounds of Chess Records and the blues masters of the 1950s and 1960s!
With one foot firmly in the past, the South Wales-based four-piece aren’t afraid to step into the future too. The Liam Ward Band are known for originals that push blues boundaries, bringing you some of the freshest British blues on offer.
One of the UK’s most revered harmonica players, vocalist and harp player Liam Ward is a winner of the National Harmonica League Player of the Year and a respected musician and songwriter.
The rest of the band comprises stalwarts of the Welsh blues scene. On guitar, respected jazzman Matt Jones (The Square Pegs, Django Chutney), Pembrokeshire favourite Martin Hill on bass (Empty Pockets, Final Demand), and in-demand drum ace Gareth Davies (Only Us, The Distributors).
The Liam Ward Band will turn your venue into a juke joint and are bound to banish your blues!
