Kris Dollimore has played with many international bands and artists including The Godfathers, The Damned, Dee Dee Ramone and Johnny Thunders. He’s also a member of Del Amitri. As a solo artist Kris has toured the length and breadth of the UK & Europe, has released three critically acclaimed solo albums to date and will release a widely anticipated new album in 2014.
Whilst Kris is known for his blues playing, his work is admired not only by blues fans, but also fans of acoustic and folk music. Kris’s has chosen a field where his playing is at its most exposed. A man, a guitar and a voice. No room for error and nowhere to hide. With a largely acoustic repertoire, precision playing is expected and delivered by Dollimore, earning him a hard core following of loyal fans and admirers including Johnny Depp, David Bowie and Chrissie Hynde.
Do not miss this gig!
