Ask Chris Buck whether he agrees with BBC Radio 2’s Blues Show’s assessment that Buck & Evans are “unquestionably major talents” and it’ll inevitably draw a wry smile. His surprise at the broadcaster’s effusive statement is hardly surprising. After all, it was only a few years ago that he played his first gig with vocalist Sally Ann Evans – a “one off pairing” to accommodate an eleventh hour offer for a show in London. “We quickly threw together a 45 minute set to get us both through that one show” laughs Sally Ann.
Buck. And Evans, literally.
