Chris Cain Napier Jazz - Special Guest Erna Ferry
Blues night featuring Chris Cain.
Featuring from the USA the one and only Chris Cain – Guitar/Vocal.
“I put Chris on my list of under-appreciated guitarists. Phenomenal player! One of the purist tones I've ever heard.” - Joe Bonamassa
Chris Cain was the star of the 2004 and 2005 World Blues Revue. A childhood blues star Cain’s first album “Late Night City Blues” shook the blues world. This outstanding debut project - financed on a shoestring - garnered no less than 4 “W.C.Handy” nominations and immediate international exposure.
“The W.C. Handy awards are the blues world equivalent of receiving a Grammy nomination.”
Throughout his career, he has carefully set the table for a family reunion between those American cousins - blues and jazz. Cain has evolved into a player of such magnitude that Robben Ford – a legendary musician in his own right – regularly uses Chris Cain as his opening act.
Featuring Manawatu’s “Queen of the Blues” Erna Ferry - Vocal & Harmonic. An all-star band featuring Richard Te One – Drums, Neil Hannan – Bass and Ben Wilcock – Keyboard/Vocal.
