Reimagining the music of The Small Faces, Faces, Ronnie Lane and early Rod Stewart
Drawing inspiration from the feel and groove of the 1960s and ’70s, Blind Horse has managed to recreate the best in British rock and pop music; that of The Small Faces, Faces, Ronnie and Rod!
Come with us to revisit the sounds and mood of Mod culture, the irreverence and hedonism of 70s musical performance and the whimsy and warmth of Ronnie Lane’s unique brand of folk rock.
The band is comprised of some of the finest musicians on Merseyside.
