The comedian explores why there have been no great black blues singers in the UK

Lenny Henry is not just a funny guy....and a knight of the realm. He's actually on course to record his first blues music album and that journey has led him to pose an important question.

sky artsLenny talks to Van Morrison, Tinie Tempah and Jools Holland on a quest to discover why the UK has never produced a single black blues singer of international fame.

The three-part series culminates in a live performance in London where Lenny will be joined on stage by talented friends including Lulu, Mica Paris and Laura Mvula.

Lenny Henry's Got The Blues starts Friday 18th September, 10pm on Sky Arts.
