Chris James & Martin Fletcher

This event has ended

After a standout performance last year, we’re thrilled to have this phenomenal blues duo back!

Chris is well known in Cumbria and the North East as a solo acoustic Blues performer. Chris was nominated in the acoustic category of the British Blues Awards 2012 and is 3 times finalist of the New Brunswick Battle of the Blues.
Martin and Chris played at the Final of this competition as a duo in 2013.

Martin is based in Morpeth and known for playing in many bands in the North-east including the “Blues Burglars” and Martin Fletcher’s Usual Suspects. He is also known for the experimental Blues/HipHop band MFUS. He has played at major Blues Festivals in Europe including Peer Blues in Belgium.

Chris and Martin have played together since 2013 either as a band with percussion and bass or more often as a duo. With a mixture of acoustic slide and fingerpicking guitar and amplified harmonica, the duo play interpretations of old Blues songs and many originals with a Blues base.
