Ian Siegal: Unplugged

2018 was another milestone year for the UK’s favourite contemporary bluesman and renegade Americana'man. He scooped Best Male Vocalist and Best Acoustic Artist in the UK Blues Awards, adding to a long list of accolades in the UK, Europe and USA.

This year he is touring a solo unplugged presentation of songs from his latest album All The Rage including a beautifully adapted acoustic version of the soul stunner, Sweet Souvenir.

Classic Rock tags Siegal “a national treasure,” America’s blues bible says “vast talent” and MOJO magazine ranks him “the cleverest writer and most magnetic blues performer in the UK.”

While he is known as a bluesman and often seen fronting his electric band, it’s just one shade in the palette of an artist who slips between continents, eras and expectations. His forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour, incendiary slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees. When it’s just man & guitar those qualities shine through even stronger.

'Whether blues belting …. or dripping soul his trademark lyrical genius is everywhere.' Blues in Britain 

'All The Rage is an emphatic return to the studio.' Classic Rock 

'A total stunner. 5/5' Music News 

'He’s carved out a role as a blues chameleon – one part Wolf, one part Waits, one part Beefheart and with shades of Dylan – but always shot through with his own uncompromising take on whatever subject interests him.' Get ready to Rock - Pete Feenstra
