Looks like the heydays of Colne are well and truly over – a bit grim again in my humble opinion – as much rock as blues! What do you guys think out there?

You’re absolutely right Gra – could someone please tell me the difference between the International stage and the British stage. Apart from the Chicago girls there’s not much to recommend. It seems to me that Colne has now lost it’s position of the UK’s top blues festival. Come back Gary Hood… quickly.

Last year we bought pledge badges at a fraction of the full ticket prices. The only venue we were denied was the ‘International Stage’. You have to ask yourself ‘Is it worth the extra’?

Trevor – in a nutshell the answer is ‘no’ – prices around and over £30 seems a bit on the steep side for who is on – although I realise that some of these guys don’t come cheap. Pete, you are definitely right – the festival has gone massively downhill since Gary Hood has not been involved. I was just remembering the first time I went in the mid-1990s – it was a Friday night and the bill was (I think), The Hoax, Bobby Mack, Sherman Robertson and Lonnie Mack! May be slightly out, but you can see where I am coming from!
