Blues guitarist Robin Trower is celebrating a new album with tour dates including Sheffield City Hall Ball Room on April 9 and we have tickets to be won, writes Graham Walker.

He has been heralded as one of the most influential guitar players to come out of the British Blues Rock scene - dubbed as “The White Hendrix”.

He admits watching Hendrix live changed his approach to the guitar, coaxing sounds from his Strat and making music all his own.

Five winners each get a pair of tickets for the Sheffield gig and a copy of his new album Something’s About To Change. Support on tour comes from Joanne Shaw Taylor.

VIDEO: Watch Robin talk about the UK tour and the musicians and music he will be playing - see YouTube report on this page.

Tickets are £22.50, may be subject to fees. Buy in person, visit or call 0114 2789 789.
