Yaron Ben-Ami is a veteran of the Israeli Blues scene. You may have seen him last year at Black Coffee Blues or at EBI in London. He's been playing both traditional Blues – from ragtime to Chicago, from Boogie to shuffle – and his own Hebrew brand of blues on numerous stages, in clubs, festivals and various media for over twenty years. His gruff singing and idiosyncratic guitar make him a natural for playing acoustic type blues. Yaron has played and performed with such Blues greats as Robert Belfour, Rev KM Williams, Jorma Kaukonen and Jeron "Blind Boy" Paxton, as well as with a number of Israeli musicians of various genres. His album "Blues in the land of Canaan" was released in 2015.

Huberman Stompers are a traditional Jazz and blues outfit that draw their inspiration from the 20s and 30s. Traveling the vaudeville circuit, playing summers in Chicago and wintering in New Orleans Huberman stompers bring you the blues that crosses the yellow dog line. Be ready for wailing woodwind and growling horns when the Stompers take to the stage, but don’t be fooled by their name, they will have you slow dragging across the floor.
