Happy New Year

Posted on: Monday, Jan 1, 2007

Happy New Year to all of the bluesinthenorthwest.com readers. I think that 2007 is going to be a great year for blues music here in the Northwest of the UK. To celebrate the start of a great year here’s the gig list for January 2007. The highlight for me is seeing the array of local, national and international stars all performing within a few hours drive of everyone’s house.

All of the promoters and club owners in the region work tirelessly to bring you the best in blues entertainment and all you need to do is to put your hand in your pocket and support the variety of venues by turning up and supporting live blues. If you don’t go to the gigs then they will not be there in the future.

Remember that the bluesinthenorthwest.com calendar is always available on this site; please let me know of any additions or cancellations emailing me or using the contact form.

Thanks for all the support in 2006 and let’s all look forward to 2007. Best of luck to everyone.
