Nowadays, at the Keighley blues club in West Yorkshire, you can listen to blues music in many forms, ranging from rock music to classical blues. Understanding blues music is a must for all before actually experiencing it! Blues music was originally sung by artists on the streets who wanted to reach out and tell you a story of pain or to share a religious message. However, today in clubs like Yorkshire, you will see a young generation of rock blues artists surfacing with a lot to say. It was in the early 1800s when blues first began.
If you enjoy blues music then you may also know that there are many untold tales and find yourself being inspired by someone’s journey. When experiencing blues music at the club, you may find yourself feeling emotions you’ve never actually felt before, and learning to deal with these in front of others can be tricky, however, you are never on your own.
The 1990s and 2000s saw the birth of a more garage rock type of blues and in came a lot of new young artists at the Keighley Blues Club. For instance appearing on the 26th of November 2017 was Samantha Fish with a special guest Felka. Today, because of the sign on the door at the blues club that reads “Boys Only”, it has set the scene for girl guitarists from all across the globe.
