    Bex Marshall and Steve

    Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial, Denton, at 5:30 pm – FREE

Bex Marshall’s unique style of guitar playing is a combined technique of slide, blues rock, ragtime and roots pickin’.
Her voice is a powerful melting pot of old black woman’s heartache and rock diva soul. Bex is a writer of distinction and notability, she pushes the boundaries of blues, her songs have been called timeless, touches of genius, and now with her 7 piece band, she is literally a musical tornado.
On Bex’s latest recordings you will find swamp blues, splashes of gospel and colorful bluegrass all with an exciting lyrically British twist.
