AMERICAN BLUES GUITARIST
KIRK FLETCHER TO TOUR THE UK
“Kirk is hands-down one of the best blues guitarists in the world.”
Considered to be one of the best Blues guitarists in the world, Kirk Fletcher has
commanded the respect and acclaim of critics, peers and fans across the globe.
Kirk has played with a variety of renowned artists such as Janiva Magness, Charlie
Musselwhite, James Cotton, Pine Top Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Mojo Buford, Larry
Carlton, Robben Ford, Michael Landau, Elvin Bishop, Ronnie Earl and many more.

Kirk will be touring with the Katie Bradley Blues Band featuring Dudley Ross and
they will be joined en route by a variety of established British Blues musicians.
The tour will take place over twenty-two dates starting on 16th October at the
Chambers Bar in Folkestone, Kent (see page 2 for tour dates/venues). BBC2’s Paul
Jones has invited Kirk to play a session for his Blues show at the world famous
Maida Vales Studios, which will be broadcast during the tour.
“Fletcher favors toothy Strat tones, stinging bends, and flurries of tight, staccato riffs
that seem to pop from his fretboard like little firecrackers”
Guitar Player Magazine
“Kirk Fletcher is a young man with a big reputation…he exudes class and style, knows all
the classic licks but never resorts to mere copying, aith his own take in his trick bag.”
