World Blues icon performs in Loulé

The talented English singer and composer returns to Portugal after his acclaimed debut in Lisbon, in 2016, at Centro Cultural de Belém

Jack Broadbent, world blues icon, will give a concert next Saturday, November 23, at 21 pm, at the Cine-Teatro Louletano, with the company of Vítor Bacalhau. 

The Algarve musician will give the first part of Jack Broadbent's concert, in a partnership with Blues a Sul – Algarve Blues Association.

The talented English singer-songwriter, who has left audiences fascinated with his live shows and his unrivaled style of playing slide guitar, returns to Portugal after his acclaimed debut in Lisbon, in 2016, at Centro Cultural de Belém.

Born in rural England into a family where music was a constant presence, Jack Broadbent points his influences to John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

With the release of the EP “I Am Leaving”, Vítor Bacalhau explores acoustic sounds more associated with the roots of the blues, sounds that end up translating unequivocally into the intimate format of a solo concert.

The show lasts approximately 100 minutes (with a break) and is aimed at people over six years old.

Tickets cost 12 euros or 10 euros for adults over 65 and under 30, with the applicable Friend Card. Tickets can be purchased here.

The Algarve Blues Association – Blues a Sul is a non-profit association that aims to spread and promote Blues in the Algarve region. With about four years of existence, this structure has been responsible for organizing the Festival de Blues de Faro since 2016, as well as a growing number of activities that include workshops and jam sessions, in addition to concerts with national and international artists.

Within the scope of this partnership between the Cine-Teatro and the aforementioned association, and in order to increase the training dimension, two music workshops (Blues) were held during the month of November in Loulé, respectively with Vítor Bacalhau – aimed at amateur and professional musicians – and Pedro Gil – aimed at students from the Loulé Music Conservatory – Francisco Rosado.
