HRH Announce The Exciting HRH Blues 2018 Line-up

Listen up blues fans, HRH have announced the line-up for HRH Blues 2018: a heady swig of the Brandy of the Damned, to be held up at the O2 Academy in Sheffield between Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April, 2018.

Bernie Marsden and King King will be headlining the event, which boasts a talent-packed line-up.

Best-known as founder member of the iconic Whitesnake, Bernie Marsden wrote or co-wrote many of the group’s hits, such as ‘Fool For Your Loving’ and ‘Here I Go Again’. To call Bernie a major player in rock and blues is an understatement. “There are only two men can play the blues, Eric Clapton and that bloke from Whitesnake,” said B.B. King in a 90s radio interview. High praise indeed!

“King King are setting the Blues world on fire!” proclaimed Classic Rock. That flame is coming to HRH Blues. No smoke and mirrors - just a fist-tight line-up delivering killer songs.

The ‘Pat McManus Band’ are a powerful three piece blues/rock Trio, headed up by Pat McManus (a.k.a. ‘The Professor’), the former Mama’s Boys’ and Celtus’ guitarist/violinist virtuoso.

Glaswegian Steve Nimmo played in The Nimmo Brothers, with his brother Alan (now of King King), but is a strong solo artist, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist. “Man, this guy can sing!” said Storyville, and sing he shall at HRH Blues 2018!

Other great bands announced include:
