With a brand new line-up, Aynsley returns to the Robin 2 yet again for another electrifying performance. He was the only British artist to be featured in ‘Classic Rock’s Top 10 Blues Artists of the new Millennium’ alongside such names as Joe Bonamassa, The White Stripes and The Black Keys, following the release of his latest album. He’s been described as the best guitarist since Clapton at his peak, whilst others have said that he’s the UK’s very own John Mayer. In June 2010, Aynsley headlined the ‘Bourbon Street’ stage at the Glastonbury festival and went on to play alongside ZZ Top just weeks later. Now, preparing for his next album, Aynsley will be showcasing some of his best songs accompanied with a selection of his new, original material and some classic covers as you’ve never heard them played before. Expect an evening of finely crafted songs performed with a passion and conviction that will have you hooked from the first chord.
