A special holiday treat for fans of Murray Hockridge and Dave Kilminster!!
Murray Hockridge and Dave Kilminster
Guitar virtuoso Dave Kilminster, currently touring with Roger Waters' 'The Wall' in North America & Canada, is to play some special US dates in early 2011 with vocalist extraordinaire Murray Hockridge, who's emotive, soulful voice spans an incredible 3 and 1/2 octaves...
Taking a break from the current schedule before the Waters' production heads to Europe in Spring, 'Murray Hockridge & Dave Kilminster' will be performing music from their forthcoming album 'Closer To Earth', a collection of soulful and spellbinding vocal and acoustic guitar interpretations of 11 rock & soul classics.
The live sets will also include original material from both artistes' repertoires.

Wednesday, 2 February BB King's, NYC in a double bill with Wonderous Stories
BBKing's is a NYC favourite - featuring music of all kinds. Fans of Dave Kilminster will remember seeing him in the US with Keith Emerson playing at the club at both Moogfest and with the Keith Emerson Band. Wonderous Stories remains one of the club’s guaranteed sell-outs, so get your tickets early when they go on sale. The atmosphere is great and the music will be tremendous and full of surprises.
