Acclaimed blues/roots trio Stark are bringing their latest tour to Chester and Wrexham.

Stark are an exciting young band with their own take on the blues. Featuring Jamie Francis on plugged-in Resonator guitar, Josh Franklin on bass and Evan Carson on drums, their sound blends old and new from both sides of the Atlantic.

They also write their own highly original songs, which are getting them noticed by a host of prestigious publications, including Classic Rock, Blues in Britain and Time Out.

They have had tracks played by Paul Jones and Huey Morgan on BBC Radio 2, and they have appeared at top London venues, including the 100 Club and Dingwalls.

Stark will be at The Compass in Chester on Friday, May 8 at 7pm. Tickets £5.50 from .

They will also be performing live at Overton on Dee Blues, Roots and Real Ale Festival on Saturday, May 9 at 1pm.
