A young Sean Webster’s life dramatically changed when a friend introduced him to the likes of the music by the blues greats. The three Kings, Albert, BB, and Freddy, as well Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, Gary Moore and the primary reason for Sean playing the guitar, the legendary Eric Clapton. Sean’s passion for guitar and his dedication to music since has continued to grow to an almost fevered obsession.

Sean recently competed on the SBS6 program The Talent Scouts and made it to the finals. He is currently touring the Dutch theaters with his band and is a regular guitarist in the house band Vandaag Inside. And this blues giant now also has a festival that bears his name. Sean Webster’s Blues All-Nighter. Read more…

During the festival, Sean will play on the main stage with his own band. Webster’s instantly recognisable voice coupled with his heartfelt melodic guitar playing has become the feature on all his album releases. Both Webster’s blues-inflected guitar licks and weathered soul shouter vocals are always passionately sung across tightly arranged songs. Music News had this to say about Webster’s talents. “I haven’t heard anyone with a voice like Sean Webster; it’s a wonder that he isn’t being hailed as a Blues superstar.” Webster has never been one for following the latest trend, never bowing to blues purism standards. His heart is worn firmly on his sleeve, personal trials released in the form of song that creates his connection with his audience. A strong blues vein runs through Webster’s original music, done so without sacrificing the need to retain a modern approach and sound. Thus creating such a likeable and listenable performer, deserved of repeat listens. Which brings us to the latest release ‘Three Nights Live’. Every artist needs a definitive live album in their catalogue. Where the stars align, the right audience is present to inspire the performers, the right set of songs, the chemistry of the band members firing on all cylinders. ‘Three Nights Live’ is the culmination of those factors for Sean Webster and his band.
