St Harmonica's Blues Club: The Blues Spiders + Laura Holland
In the early 1970’s the area around Southend and Canvey Island became known as the Thames Delta with bands led by octor Feelgood and the Kursall Flyers taking the London Pub Rock scene, and later the World, by storm. Well, the scene is still very much alive and kicking in that part of Essex and these days the Blues Spiders have been very much at the forefront of what is going on. We’re delighted to have them once more at St Harmonicas for the first time at the Southgate Club venue and we know that you are going to love what they do. The Blues Spiders have built on their area’s R’n’B heritage and rather than serving up the same old offering of blues covers they draw on Chicago blues and swing to play their own compositions with a side offering of southern slide plus a few classics thrown in. The line up has some serious blues pedigree with Mitch Greaves (harp and vocals), Russ Cottee (guitars and vocals) and magnificent rhythm section of Paul Henshaw on the double bass and Bob Clouter on drums.
The band have played all over at major festivals and venues including a five year stint at Ain’t Nothing But; they featured on Paul Jones Radio 2 show back in 2017 and have 3 acclaimed albums to their credit:

Half time comes in the form of Laura Holland. A few years ago Laura was one of the rising starts of UK Blues featuring on the cover of Blues in Britain magazine. After a spell out she is back with guitarist Antonin Vanneyre and we are thrilled to see her performing again and back at St Harmonica’s.
What a great night in prospect, see you there.
