UK Guitarist Kris Barras has a genre-defying sound: a high-energy hybrid of no-nonsense Rock, Blues and Country. Winners of ‘Best New Band’ in the 2018 Planet Rock awards, the Kris Barras Band have become one of the UK’s fastest rising acts. Recently voted one of the ‚Top Blues Guitarists in the World‘ (Music Radar) and winning the ‘Best Album’ accolade in the European Blues Awards, perhaps best demonstrates the band’s fluidity and appeal to fans of different genres. 2019 has seen the band already complete a near sell-out UK tour, going from playing to an average of just 50 people per show in late 2017, up to selling out 400-500+ capacity venues, all in the space of just over one year. With a brand new album scheduled for release later this year, the band will have extensive UK/European tour plans for the autumn.
