Legendary Birmingham blues venue hits the Black Country.
This Thursday, 30th September, Henry’s Blueshouse On The Road opens at Red By Night on 11 Waterfront East at Merry Hill, Dudley DY5 1XG with leading Midlands blues band The Nitecrawlers.
The doors open at 7pm at Henry’s at Red By Night and entertainment starts fifteen minutes later with Henry’s trademark Blues Talkin’ where blues musicians, in this case The Nitecrawlers, talk about how they first met the blues, what it means to them, who their influences are and more.
Henry’s Blueshouse first saw the light of day in 1968 at The Crown in Station Street Birmingham quickly gaining a national representation with performances with American bluesmen Lightnin’ Slim, Champion Jack Dupree, Eddie Guitar Burns and more as well as UK bands which includes Status Quo, Ten Years After, Jethro Tull but became most widely-known as the birthplace of Black Sabbath who became more-or-less resident at Henry’s.
Henry’s closed in 1972, to reopen almost fifty years later at the Bull.s Head in July 2020 and going on the road this month.
The Nightcrawlers take the stage at 8pm, playing two live sets. Admission is £3.
Red By Night is at Unit 11 Waterfront E, Level St, Brierley Hill DY5 1XG This will be the first of a monthly series at The Red By Night and will be followed on 28th October by Chickenbone John & Harmonica Dave, then on 25th November the Whiskey Brothers.
