The Whisky Brothers, featuring Richard Heath on vocals and mandolin and Gerry Smith on piano, perform old style acoustic blues with songs from the great American blues tradition as well as their own material. In the mid 1990s, Richard and Gerry formed the Splinter Blues Band which, apart from performing at venues like Ronnie Scott’s, also hosted a popular weekly blues club at the Hare and Hounds in south Birmingham for many years. In 2012 they reunited to form the Whisky Brothers, returning to their favourite style of music and the songs they most love to play.
