Sunday February 8th – Afternoon Gig

Raphael Callaghan the gig promoter has written in with details of the next Blues at the Rock gig coming up in New Brighton a few short days away.

There is a real buzz about the next Blues On The Rock session at Fort Perch Rock, New Brighton, on Sunday afternoon February 8th.   For the hosts, Liverpool blues duo Blue C, have as their special guests Down At Antones, who are remembered with great affection by blues fans in the north west for their blistering performances in the 90s. Down at Antones have been “resting” in the millenium years, but the original frontline of Neil Partington on gritty guitar and vocals and Ken Peace on big-toned amplified harmonica are back for selected gigs with a crack rhythm section.

This is a rare one and not to be missed!

Music is from 1pm-4pm, and there is also blues memorabilia on display, a chance to win blues CDs and the ever-popular Talkin’ Blues section where Raphael Callaghan of Blue C will interrogate Neil and Ken. Cafe/bottle bar, too. Admission £4 which includes admission to the fort’s fascinating museum. Be early for a seat! Enquiries, 0151 709 5484, or
