Mick Pini and Friends at the Hinckley ACT

Friday 15th April 2016: we welcome Mick Pini and friends to the Hinckley ACT: “you’ll hear echoes and influences from the whole tradition of the blues in Mick’s playing”.

Those distinctive raw, attacking riffs and phrases, often reminiscent of such legendary names as Freddie King, Albert Collins or T-Bone Walker hit you with aggression not unlike a ton of bricks, then in a moment, he’ll melt your heart with a sweeping phrase of pure beauty.

 

About Mick Pini

Excerpt from an article on the Blues.gr website.

If you’re lucky enough to catch veteran British bluesman Mick Pini live you are guaranteed the real deal; no pedals, no effects, just a (rare) 54 Strat (stroked) played by a bluesmeister. Oh – and how he makes it plead, bleed, sing, scream, cry – and smoke! 

“With a life time in music you’ll hear echoes and influences from the whole tradition of the blues in Mick’s playing. His uncompromising adherence to a genuine belief in his music has never been deflected. Those distinctive raw, attacking riffs and phrases, often reminiscent of such legendary names as Freddie King, Albert Collins or T-Bone Walker hit you with aggression not unlike a ton of bricks, then in a moment, he’ll melt your heart with a sweeping phrase of pure beauty.”
