CHERISHED blues musician with more than 40 years in the business is bringing his band to Lyme Regis.

Sam Kelly and his ‘Station House’ band have been featuring on the UK music scene for many years and have announced a concert at the Marine Theatre.

Originating from London’s Station Tavern in the early nineties, Station House was formed from the concept of a blues band, mixing funk and soul rhythms with the diversity of the blues.

Founder members Sam Kelly, TJ Johnson and Dave Clark were joined by lead singer Root Jackson and the band held a monthly residency at the Station Tavern for more than a decade.

Fast forward to 2009, Sam re-launched the band boasting a new line-up featuring Paul Jobson on keys and vocals and Jerome Marcus on percussion.

In 2016, a third lead singer, Rowena Poole, joined to work at venues and festivals all over Europe.

Station House’s musical catalogue includes Keb Mo, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder and Little Feat. The band’s sound is influenced by soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk.

With three lead singers supported by percussionist and an internationally-acclaimed drummer, the result is an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly based in the blues.

Sam Kelly’s Station House will be at the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Friday, March 15, with the bar opening at 7pm and the concert at 8pm.

Tickets cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door and Theatre Friends receive 10 per cent off, which are available from the theatre or at
