Greg Copeland and Steve Gilles will bring us an up close and personal acoustic blues, roots and soul journey.

Greg pays his dues to the originals and forefathers of the Blues from deep down South of the USA channelling this spirit into his own material and style. You'll hear warm embraces with Sister Soul and a tip of the hat to Brother Funk.

On his side will be Steve 'Guitar' Gilles, playing acoustic and resonator steel guitar, while wailing on the Blues Harp, also known as the 'Mississippi saxophone'.

Born in Portsmouth, Virginia (USA), Greg was and still is heavily influenced by artists such as James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Robert Johnson, Howlin´Wolf and many others. These influences have helped Greg to develop his own unique style, based on Blues taking in Soul and Funk elements.

Greg performs across the globe as an accomplished songwriter and has produced several albums. His latest work titled "Browneyed Handsome Man" was released in March 2019.

“When I sing I want you to feel my hurt, my pain, my happiness and my sadness. I want to ask for forgiveness if I did something wrong and forgive people if they have done me wrong. All these things I try to do with my music.”

Proudly sponsored by the Mactaggart Family.
