THERE will be an intimate solo gig with charismatic Skip ‘Little-Axe’ McDonald at the South Holland Centre at 7.30pm on Wednesday.

Skip’s musical influences have gone full circle, having played an integral part on early rap classics in America with the Sugar Hill House Band and going on to work with the likes of Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaata, James Brown, Robert Plant and Sinead O’Connor, Skip now returns to the blues he grew up with and learned from his father in Ohio. The sound is raw, stripped down and intense, the message in the lyrics as important as Skip’s virtuoso musicianship. The acoustic tradition of the blues crashes into the 21st century with Skip’s use of effects that create his unique brand of Dub Gospel blues.
