Hailing from Arkansas USA with his own combination of Blues, Country and Rock, Bo Jenkins has has become an institution on the blues circuit since relocating to Australia. This Saturday the Somerville Hotel welcomes Bo Jenkins on board as part of this months Saturday Blues sessions kicking off from 7pm.

“Bo Jenkins talent puts him in the same league as Hendrix and Clapton” is a bold statement but these are the words from “RHYTHMS” magazine following his performance at Byron Bay Bluesfest.  Bo, a left hander, tunes his guitar upside down and plays with the high “E” string on top – allowing him to play some things that right handed players just cannot do.

Renown in earlier days as one of our foremost local Blues men, Bo left our cosy culture behind six years ago opting for the warmer climate of Queensland.  In great news for fans, our legendary lefty is back home (well…our home) and back to stay.

Bo Jenkins performs at Somerville Hotel this Saturday August 19.  Show starts at 7pm in the Sports Bar with no cover charge.

Don’t miss it!
