Rising star Laurence Jones will be joined by Red Butler for a gig at Harpenden Public Halls next Tuesday, September 15.

Laurence released his debut album Thunder In The Sky in 2012 and was voted Young Artist of the Year in the British Blues Awards of 2014. In the same year he won the final of the first UK European Blues Challenge and this year he will be representing the UK in the same event in Brussels.

Joining him will be new young blues/rock band Red Butler, formed by Alex Butler in April 2012.

The band released its debut album Freedom Bound last summer and it was glowingly reviewed by a number of leading publications in the music business. Shortly afterwards Red Butler won the Best Newcomer award in the Writers’Poll for Blues Matters magazine.
