Galashiels music lovers are invited to climb aboard the ‘Ghost Train’ in Galashiels on Friday, November 15, as the explosive blues of The Lewis Hamilton Band rolls into town.
Led by talented, 20-year-old frontman and guitarist Lewis, the band have notched up 300 gigs plus Ghost Train, their third album, since their formation in 2010.
Their debut album, Gambling Machine, won the Scottish New Music Awards Best Jazz/Blues Recording category.
After a year touring from Farnham to Orkney, and taking in blues festivals in Hebden Bridge, Maryport and Shetland, they return to Reivers Sports bar this Friday for a gig with the Borders own blues rockers Ruff Cut.
“Reivers is one of the best venues we’ve visited, the crowd have been amazing each time,” said Nick Hamilton, bassist, and Lewis’s father.
The gig starts at 8.30pm with Ruff Cut, then The Lewis Hamilton Band take the headline slot, followed by a monster jam with both bands. Admission is £3 on the door.
