As of 2017 Norman was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame®, a prestigious recognition indeed and only a handful of UK artists can claim the same, those being Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce to name just two (only the 7th British artist to be awarded the honor)!”
“Norman is like a white Freddy King” – BB King
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: BB King, 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 Band are one of the hardest working bands on the circuit and one of a few acts, playing songs relevant today. Recently the band have been touring Europe with Chris Farlowe, Larry Garner and Van Morrison.
