Festivals Summer Sundays – Beak, Bowie & Sharkey

2pm – 4pm | FREE | Brewery Garden | Summer Sundays

Bowie ,Beak and Sharkey are Jon Bowie, guitar and vocals, Beak Davison, bass and Kevin Sharkey, drums.

They play power trio blues and blues /rock which can take off into excursions of funk and psychedelia. The guitar playing of Jon Bowie references the playing of the pioneers of blues electric guitar like BB and Albert King and Buddy Guy and late 60`s artists like Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter. There is also a big infusion of other Texas blues players like Lightnin` Hopkins, Albert Collins and Stevie Ray Vaughan. All this is propelled by the dynamic groove of the amazing rhythm section of Beak and Sharkey. The bass playing of Beak Davison has a uniquely rooted and powerful but free flowing style which awesomely compliments Kevin Sharkey’s incredibly expressive and dynamic drumming.

There is always a lot of exciting interplay between these musicians which brings this music into the here and now in a big way.
