Many people know Gary Grainger as the 2012 British Blues Award winning host of The Blues Show on BishopFM.
Blues has been a strong influence on everything Gary has played – one Country & Western Band leader told Gary: “Stop Playing The Blues – or go join a Blues Band” – advice which Gary promptly followed.
But it has always been acoustic music in general, and the Blues in particular, that have held their place in Gary’s heart and he currently presents an eclectic mix of Blues and Americana at live venues around the North East of England.
Gary’s current acoustic set includes a mixture of traditional & modern blues tunes, featuring Gary’s lived-in voice & dextrous fingerpicking & slide guitar. His set also includes songs not so much from left field, rather from the West Coast – of the USA. Gary features songs by bands such as Little Feat, Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers – & ZZ Top!

Located in old part of Berwick next to original road bridge over the Tweed. Downstairs bar used by DJ's and bands at weekends. Winner of CAMRA pub of the year awards. Unique rear open drinking area surrounded by very high walls.
