Ian Siegal & Ben Prestage, live at Band on the Wall

DATE: 16th November 2010

A unique double bill – MOJO Blues Album of the Year (2010) artist, Ian Siegal, and the American one-man-band Ben Prestage who plays an accompanying role on this track.

Siegal is widely regarded as the UK’s finest contemporary bluesman and is one of only two living British artists to achieve the highest ranking in the Penguin Book of Blues Recordings.

Ben Prestage, the grandson of a Mississippi sharecropper, was making his first tour of the UK. Growing up in south central Florida, Prestage began to mix Mississippi Country Blues with his own brand of Florida Swamp Blues. In addition to guitar, he plays an array of stringed instruments and plays a multi-piece drum kit with his feet.

Filmed by the Band on the AV Unit on 16 November 2010.
