Kaz will be playing 2 shows this year : Part 1 on Wednesday night at our 21st Birthday Party, and Part 2 on Thursday night at our Festival Launch. Different sets, so make it a KHB double bubble and go to both gigs !
Multi award winning Kaz Hawkins is Northern Ireland’s very own soul darling. The Belfast born singer-songwriter is fast becoming a performing icon across the UK & Europe. Her high energy, original shows with her 1950’s style swing-dress-meets-Dr Martens look and ability to closely connect with her fans contribute to make Kaz one of today’s most popular roots artists in the UK and Ireland as she continues to play to full houses.
Kaz Hawkins Band won the 3rd UK Blues Challenge in 2016 which won them the right to represent the UK in Memphis in 2017 at the International Blues Challenge (IBC) were they made it to the semi-finals, the first ever UK Band to compete in the Blues Foundation event.
They went on to represent the UK at the European Blues Challenge in Denmark where they won against 21 countries becoming the first ever UK band to bring home the title for United Kingdom.
