Norman Beaker has been at the forefront of the British Blues scene for over 4 decades playing with Alexis Korner, Graham Bond, Jack Bruce, Tony Ashton, Paul Jones, Eric Burdon and many others.
BB King commented, “Norman is like a white Freddy King”,a compliment indeed, and not one wasted on the many artistes Norman has subsequently worked with including: BBKing, Jimmy Rogers, Buddy Guy, Lowell Fulson, Fenton Robinson, Chuck Berry, Carey Bell James Booker, Jon Lord, Larry Garner and Ruby Turner to name just a few.
The Beaker Bandare one of the hardest working bands on the circuit and one of a the few acts, playing songs relevant today. Recently the band have been touring Europe with Chris Farlowe and Van Morrison. They have a new album “Between The Lines”and are permanently on the road in their own right and with Larry Garner, and of course Chris Farlowe for nearly 20 years. The band mix a blend of all types of blues with a lot of energy and also with a lot of humour.
