Johnny Dickinson's music career got off to a dream start with his Northumbrian band Splitcrow when Kerrang magazine said that their first album Rockstorm was "the best album from a Brit band in 10 years" stating that Johnny Dickinson was "the most potent slide player in the UK". Unfortunately, like so many other bands, they split up prematurely in 1986.
After a spell playing pedal-steel with London's Western Swing outfit, The Moonshine Boys, Johnny became a founder member of Paul Lamb and the Kingsnakes. During Johnny's two years with the band, they were winners of many British and International Blues awards. After giving his all to the Kingsnakes, John treaded the boards as a solo artist releasing acclaimed albums such as Castles & Old Kings, The English Summer and Border Ballads.
Paul Lamb is hailed by aficionados and music press around the world as Europe’s foremost blues harmonica exponent and has forged himself a place in the history books as one of the greatest players of our time. He has won countless awards, sold record-breaking quantities of albums, and performed the world over with his long-standing musical compatriots, The Kingsnakes. Recently inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall Of Fame (alongside the likes of Peter Green, John Mayall & Alexis Korner), Lamb still continues to bring his infectious brand of soulful blues to a plethora of fans around the globe…
