Co-founder and continuing member of the Blues Band with Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness, Dave Kelly, Gary Fletcher has contributed many original songs to the band’s output, notably Greenstuff and So Lonely but has emerged in the 21st century as an artist in his own right.

He plays and sings a compelling mix of original songs and classic covers, incorporating elements of the blues, Americana and folk, using guitar, slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele. He’s released several albums featuring both electric and acoustic line-ups, as well as the acclaimed In Solitary solo offering, which along with the electric Giant From The Blue album, secured 4-star reviews from Maverick and R2 magazines. Bob Harris has featured Gary live in the studio on his BBC R2 show several times and in session for his YouTube channel Under the Apple Tree.
