We are both delighted and honoured to welcome the legend that is Connie Lush as an honorary member of the UK Blues Federation which will also see her being an Ambassador for UKBlues helping spread the word!
Connie needs little introduction to most on the UK blues scene where she is recognised as one of the finest Blues singers in the UK today having received many awards including five times “Best Female Vocalist UK” earning her a place in the Gallery of Greats, alongside Alexis Korner and Eric Clapton to name just two. Her incredible stage presence and powerful vocals have also been recognized overseas as she was twice voted “European Blues Vocalist of the year” by the “Blues Trophies Awards”. However, pride of place must go to her award from the people of Liverpool for “Performing Arts”. And that’s just to date!!
Connie is also known as a songwriter, DJ and unforgettable performer. She continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous gusto for life and music wherever she goes! Blues is her business and business is good!
Recently, Connie was one of the panel of six who acted as judges at the 4th UK Blues Challenge which took place within walking distance of her Liverpool home at the legendary Cavern Club. She found being a judge a very hard job and great fun!
Talking about her new role Connie says ‘I feel very honoured and excited to say the least!’
We at UKBlues are thrilled to have Connie on our team. She is such a significant figure on the UK blues scene and her association with us can only enhance both the profile and reputation of UKBlues.
We concur wholeheartedly with the late BB King who said of Connie: “That woman makes my heart sing”
