Blues pianist Ben Waters has added Sixpenny Handley to his tour of village halls this December.

He will be coming to Sixpenny Handley Village Hall, Common Road, on Thursday December 9. Doors open at 7.30 pm, music from 8pm.

Ben has played with many acts over the years including Ronnie Wood, The Rolling Stones, The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie, Sir Ray Davies, Dave Gilmore, Dave Stewart, Jools Holland, Chuck Berry, Mick Hucknall, Rod Stewart, Johnny Depp, Amy MacDonald, PJ Harvey, Shakin’ Stevens, Chris Jagger to name but a few.

He is currently working with Ronnie Wood and they have released a live album called “Mad Lad” which has won much critical acclaim.

He has composed hundreds of songs and been involved with lots of writing with friends. He has been featured on TV and radio all over the world, with the album ‘Boogie for Stu” topping the blues charts worldwide.

“Ben has played sell-out shows at Sydney Opera House, The Royal Albert Hall and some of the largest festivals in the world” said Penny Mansergh from Sixpenny Sessions, “So how lucky are we that he is now coming to play an intimate gig in Sixpenny Handley. We are really thrilled to be back with a bang.”
