8pm | Friday 21st July
Multi award winning Kaz Hawkins is Northern Ireland’s very own blues and soul darling. The Belfast born singer-songwriter is fast becoming a performing icon across UK & Europe & the United States. Her high energy, original shows with her 1950s style swing-dress-meets-Dr Martens look and ability to closely connect with her public contribute to make Kaz one of today’s most popular independent artists in the UK and Ireland, as she continues to play to full houses. Kaz has been compared to Etta James & Janis Joplin to name but a few. Mixing through the genres of music for over 20 years, she finally found her niche in roots and blues, bringing a fun, inspiring & hopeful message with her new debut album Get Ready self-released in August 2014, featuring Kaz’s deep, powerful voice, original song-writing and soulful tracks, Get Ready wooed both the public and the critics, winning the Blues Matters Magazine’ Writers Poll Best Studio Album of 2015 in September. In a hat trick feat during the same month, Kaz accepted the prestigious Barry Middleton Award for Emerging Artist at the British Blues Awards (the first ever Northern Ireland recipient) and also received the Pure M Award for 2015 All-Ireland Best Female Act at a ceremony in Dublin. The success continued in 2016 with her band album Feelin’ Good which was the IBBA album of the year beating Joe Bonamassa. KHB won the right to represent United Kingdom at the IBC in Memphis and EBC in Denmark in 2017. The band went down a storm in Memphis and returned home proud as semi-finalists. They now head to Horsen’s in April to challenge for the European title.
