Norman Beaker is an English blues guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter from Manchester. He has been involved in the British blues scene since the early 1970's and has worked with many artists.
"In 2017, Manchester native Norman Beaker became one of only eight 21st-century British artists to be officially recognised and inducted in The Blues Hall of Fame®, alongside Jack Bruce, Peter Green, John Mayall, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton.
The honour was never more honestly earned; The North's very own Legend is one of those very first artists who in the '60s contributed to creating the unique British Blues, R&B and Rock sound that captivated the world.
Norman Beaker has kept the ageless sound of Classic British Blues, Rock and R&B alive throughout his distinguished career. Staying true to those genuine innovative roots despite changing trends have only served to keep his music cutting-edge and contemporary. Accompanied by his band of Manchester's finest, Norman's guitar, voice, and original songs are as fresh and powerful as when he began in the Northern clubs of the '60's...and continue as ageless, resilient and enduring as his home city itself."
