Baby Isaac was formed in 1992 by Gary Arnott (vocals & harmonica), Eddie Eugster (vocals & keys) and Derek Welsh (guitar). The catalyst was a shared love of blues and roots music, but also witnessing Paul Lamb & The Kingsnakes performing at the local ‘Kelty Rock Club’.
Authenticity was a key factor in developing the Baby Isaac sound – it was all about the feel, and the natural, energetic performances. Baby Isaac set out to capture the essence of 50’s Chicago Blues & Swing. Influenced by such Blues greats as T-Bone Walker, BB King, Little Walter and Sonny Terry, the band have successfully developed their unique sound, loosely termed as ‘Goodtime Blues’, into a powerful yet immensely dynamic mix of Blues, Swing, R & B and Jazz.
Each member brings with them a broad spectrum of musical influence, which combines perfectly in their exciting and varied sets. Baby Isaac play a mix of original material and cover versions, breathing new life into original Blues classics, whilst bringing new, expertly crafted compositions to audiences, both young and old.
Whether you get your kicks from blinding Blues guitar work, incredibly dynamic vocals, stunning harp playing or a swinging rhythm section, Baby Isaac have all of the above, so make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to catch one of the UK’s finest.
