Described as the most potent slide guitarist in England, Dickinson is also recognised nationally as a find singer-songwriter.

“You hear a lot of good influences in his music but the result is always something special and really hits the spot.”

“This concert is for all lovers of fine acoustic music from blues to reggae but with a string loyalty to his first love – the blues.”
