The Pat Travers Band will be in concert at The Flowerpot in Derby on Thursday, October 10.

One of Canada’s most revered rock blues guitarists and his American band will be playing a rare intimate performance as part of a short UK tour.

Since the critically acclaimed 1976 debut album featuring his own brand of high quality 70s guitar rock and roll, Pat Travers has gone on to deliver melodic 80s rock, a blues period throughout most of the 90s, noted performances with various power trios during the first few years of the new millennium, and a full blooded return to the trademark Pat Travers Band sound as he entered his fifth performing and recording decade.

2012 saw the release of his critically acclaimed brand new studio album Blues On Fire.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see one of rock’s iconic guitarists on one of rare visits to the UK.

Then, on Friday, October 11, it’s the return to the King Street-based venue of Keep It Cash, with support on the night from Kezia Gill.

Keep It Cash are an acclaimed Johnny Cash tribute band, having performed at top theatres throughout the UK and across Europe.

They’ve worked for 20th Century Fox, The National Trust and the BBC, playing music from the gospel beginnings, to the full band sound and finally into the critically acclaimed and ground breaking American recordings.

They were booked by HMV to perform at their stores in London and Dublin for the launch of the Johnny Cash film Walk The Line.

The founding members of Keep It Cash have been close friends for many years and lifelong fans of the music and songs of the legendary Johnny Cash.

Talented Derby singer/songwriter Kezia Gill provides the support act on the night.

Then, on Saturday, October 12, it’s the latest eagerly-awaited visit to the venue by The Nimmo Brothers, with support from Matt Woosey.

The band is one of the finest exponents of electric blues around and is touring the UK to promote the latest studio album Brother To Brother.

Guitarist siblings Stevie and Alan Nimmo from Glasgow first performed together professionally in the late 1990s and have since gone on to highlight the best in powerhouse British rock and blues.

Their material is rooted in the traditions of the British blues boom of the 1960s but includes enough rock elements to keep most blues/rock fans happy.

Doors open for all three gigs at 8pm.

Admission is £15 for The Pat Travers Band, £10 for Keep It Cash and £12 for The Nimmo Brothers.
