Text Box: Lancashire born, acclaimed slide guitarist, Bryn Haworth, is a singer-songwriter and a top performer who has been delighting audiences with his own unique brand of rock, country and gospel blues for nearly 4 decades.

Bryn came to London from Lancashire in the late sixties and joined “Les Fleur de Lys” a motown/soul band which became house band for Atlantic Records in England. He left the band in ’69 and travelled to California; from there he toured extensively in the US in various American bands and was a founder member of Wolfgang, a band put together and managed by the legendary Bill Graham, appearing on bills with such artists as Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, Taj Mahal and others. In 1973 he returned to England and was signed to Island Records where he made his first LP, “Let The Days Go By”.
He has recorded as a session guitar player with top musicians including Chris de Burgh, Joan Armatrading, Cliff Richard and Gerry Rafferty.  
Bryn also writes his own songs, and has had several of his own compositions recorded by other artists including Lulu, Sandy Denny, and Mary Black.
Music reviewer Richard Williams calls him a “musician's musician - a first class rock musician whose music has its roots in blues and r&b … and is particularly recognised a remarkable exponent of the slide (or bottleneck) guitar, a technique derived from the blues”.  
Bryn recorded a further album for Island (“Sunny Side Of The Street”), and then continued his career as a solo recording artist with A&M Records where he recorded “Grand Arrival” and “Keep The Ball Rolling”. During this period he made numerous radio and TV appearances, including sessions for John Peel and appearances on BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test, as well as touring extensively in England and Europe supporting such artists as Traffic, Bad Company, Gallagher & Lyle and Fairport Convention.
In 1974 Bryn and his wife Sally became Christians and this powerful experience has brought a strong gospel influence into his music. Between 1988 and 1992, Bryn was on staff at the Southwest London Vineyard Church developing worship teams and setting up a prison ministry, and since then Bryn has regularly performed concerts in prisons across the UK and run workshops to help inmates develop their music skills.

Bryn also travels extensively, performing concerts in a wide variety of venues including concert halls, theatres, pubs, clubs and churches.
He has released 14 further albums including Time Out, the 2nd album recorded specifically for prison inmates, and Rebel Man , his latest album, released autumn 2015.   
2017 sees the release of a new single from the archives How Long, and the 1980s 12 Classics for digital download.
John Ingham, for Sounds wrote “if we are to have God-rock, then let it be Bryn Haworth; he thinks of the music foremost … you owe yourself a listen”. So — get listening!
