Charlotte Street Blues opens on June 11 2009 with performances by the London Community Gospel Choir, Bex Marshall, Papa George, an exclusive UK show by Boston-based Eileen Rose and DJ set by David Freeman.

Charlotte Street Blues will feature a nightly rotating programme of events, with the intention of helping new British and Irish Blues bands make their mark while also promoting more established home-grown and international groups. Forthcoming bookings include Mississippi Heat (June 27), John Lee Hooker Jnr (July 16) and Dwayne Dopsie (27/28 July).

Parisian-born musical director Sophia Natso, whose career includes promoting new-talent at Glastonbury and last year’s London Bossa Nova Festival, says: “I have always been passionate about the Blues because it covers a variety of genres from Bluegrass to Rockabilly to Rock n Roll to Roots something for everyone. And as Willie Dixon said, “The Blues are the roots, everything else is the fruits.”
