Superb support from
Miller Anderson is a superb guitarist whose 42-year-long career has included all the main rock blues names in the UK.
He made his pro debut in 1965 with Freddy Fingers lee with Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople.
Miller joined the hugely popular Keef Hartley Band recording 5 albums including the celebrated ‘Overdog’ and appeared at the groundbreaking 1969 ‘Woodstock’ Festival where only a managerial dispute stopped the band from being on the acclaimed film.
Miller subsequently teamed up with Kim Simmons in Savoy Brown, before joining Stan Webb for two projects, the one-off project – the three guitar line-up of ‘Broken Glass’ – (recently reissued on Mystic records) with Stan and Robbie Blunt. He subsequently accepted an invitation to join Chicken Shack before spending the next few years employed as an in-demand session guitarist with a wide range of artists from Leslie West’s Mountain (‘Go For Your Life), Blood Sweat & Tears, Mick Taylor, Roger Chapman to Donovan and T Rex!!.
The last 20 years have seen Miller become the core member of the still-touring Spencer Davis Group with whom he has written, recorded, and sung.
In 1999 Miller became the guest guitarist with Deep Purple appearing on the ‘Live Albert Hall’ CD and DVD.
More recently Miller has cut a new album with Chris Farlowe and tours on the back of a brand new solo ‘Chameleon’ with his band that comprises Kris Gray (Edgar Broughton band/Chris Farlowe); Paul Burgess (10cc) and top German multi-instrumentalist player Frank Tischer on keys.
The special set will include material from the new album, the recent ‘Bluesheart’ CD, and of course the legendary Keep Hartley band!
Don’t miss this true unsung hero of the British rock & blues who’s who.
Plus the addition of Blues and RnB combo ‘Midnight Cannonball’ A must to be seen!
