Since winning ‘Best New Band’ in the 2019 Planet Rock awards, the Kris Barras Band have become one of the UK’s fastest rising acts.
With his blistering technique and soul-wrenching melodies, Kris was voted one of the ‘Top Blues Guitarists in the World’ by Music Radar, while the band scored ‘Best Album’ accolade in the European Blues Awards.
The band have thrilled audiences worldwide as the support act for Bon Jovi, Black Stone Cherry, Joanne Shaw Taylor, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Walter Trout.
Their high-energy, no-nonsense Rock and Blues, foot-stomping riffs and catchy tunes have made the band one of the most played artists on Planet Rock Radio, and they’ve performed two live acoustic sessions on BBC Radio 2 to over 3 million listeners.

Six artists come together to celebrate the music of John Martyn: vocalist Blythe Pepino (toured with London Grammar), virtuoso guitarist and mandolin enthusiast Kit Hawes (has worked with Seth Lakeman & Cara Dillon), soul singer & multi-instrumentalist Pete Josef (has performed with Roni Size, Reprazent and Rag ’n' Bone Man), Sunday Times ‘Breaking Act’ Sam Brookes and rhythm section John Blakeley & Jon Short (Sheelanagig).
A virtuoso guitarist with a laid-back but highly expressive voice, John Martyn emerged from the British folk scene in the late 1960s to make some of the most hauntingly evocative and mesmerising music of his era.
