Giants of Rock, Day Two
Venue: Butlins, Minehead
Back at Butlins with Aaron Keylock, Federal Charm, Hundred Seventy Split, Family and Magnum
Day Two of Giants Of Rock does a little to address the question of Who Are The Next Giants Of Rock (of, if you will, its Gnats).
Deep into the night, people continued to talk about a particular performance on the event’s Introducing Stage. Aaron Keylock is a 16-year-old, British-based slide guitarist who wowed audiences on Blackberry Smoke’s recent UK tour. His songs use the blues as their foundation, though he’s also about feisty Southern boogie. Is he the finished article? Of course not, that guitar is almost bigger than him and the vocals require a little work, but the building blocks are all present and correct.
