A blues musician who once kept Paul McCartney off the charts is coming to Broadway.

Dave Thomas will play at the Stanton Club just outside the village on Saturday, May 14.

Thomas got into music at an early age, forming his first band ‘Skid Row’ at just 12 years old.

But it was with prog-rock band Blonde on Blonde, named after the Bob Dylan album, that his career truly took off.

The band shared stages with Deep Purple, Slade, and Genesis to name just a few.

 They also appeared at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1968 and 1969 where they performed on the bill with Jimi Hendrix and Dylan himself and in 1971 headlined a show in Yorkshire with Fleetwood Mac supporting them.

His latest album, One More Mile, reached number one on the Root’s Music Report chart in March, 2021, beating the likes of Paul McCartney, Arlo Parks, and the Pretenders to top spot.

He also performed for McCartney at a show commemorating Buddy Holly at the Texas Embassy.

Thomas’ Stanton Club show is almost halfway to being sold out, with tickets costing £15.
