Come March, Texas born, Blind Pig recording artist Hamilton Loomis will do a month long, 20 stop tour of the UK. Beginning in Nottingham, England on March 4th and concluding at the Darvel Music Festival, Darvel, Scotland, March, 27th, his tour will take him through England, Wales and Scotland before he flies home to perform at the South Texas State Fair, Ford Park, Beaumont, Texas, where he will perform Saturday, April 3rd.

About Hamilton Loomis
“If blues, soul, and rock can be said to form a triangle, you’ll find Hamilton Loomis right in the center of it”, says Guitar Player.

Born and raised in Galveston, Texas, Hamilton was first hooked on music through his parents’ extensive collection of blues, Motown, Texas swing, and soul records. Hamilton honed his multi-instrumental chops early, learning drums, piano, guitar, bass and harmonica by age fourteen, and touring as part of his family’s doo-wop group.
Other Texas blues legends such as Johnny Copeland, Gatemouth Brown, and Albert Collins also schooled him early on in the finer points of the music, recognizing the youngster’s talent and potential.

Hamilton’s 2002 release, Live-Highlights, captured what his crowd-pleasing show “is all about, and that is powerful Blues, Funk and Soul,” according to Twelve Bar Rag magazine.
Hamilton’s first Blind Pig release, “Kickin’ It”, released in 2003, presented his innovative approach to an audience hungry for something new in roots music.

Despite possessing the musical vocabulary that allowed him to handle virtually all the instruments heard on the CD, Hamilton’s focus on quality remains steadfast. By deftly balancing his blues roots and penchant for experimentation and originality, Loomis has guaranteed his place at the head of the pack of young artists changing the face of modern blues.
