Hi folks! An exciting addition to the Big Weekend program this year.. We have had many legends grace our festival stage over the years, but this guy just about trumps them all!
Bluesman extraordinaire, New Orleans style piano genius, and vocalist.. The incredible Diz Watson!!
Over the years, Diz has made appearances and worked with the likes of Chas n Dave, Clarence ‘Frogman’ Henry, Alexi Korner, Dr John and opened for the Stones, at the request of Ian Stewart, at the start of their l982 world tour.
