He will be performing in Nottingham on May 20.

Celebrated as the Young Blues Musician of the Year in 2023, Toby is no stranger to the stage as he featured as Zack Mooneyham in the first West End production of School of Rock and has shared stages with blues heavyweights including his hero Joe Bonamassa — he featured at his Mediterranean Blue Cruise — Buddy Guy, Peter Frampton and Slash.

Toby’s been partnered by Gibson Guitars since he was ten and is endorsed by Blackstar Amplification and D’Addario Strings. He’s recently spent time in Nashville filming for Gibson as well as travelling to Texas at the invitation of the Buddy Holly Foundation for songwriting workshops.
