MARYPORT Blues Festival is to be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in what organisers have called a breakthrough in national recognition.
A two-hour special will be featured on the Paul Jones R&B Show on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Festival spokeswoman Eleanor Carr said it was a coup for Maryport because it would be the first UK blues festival to be recorded for a national radio broadcast.
Recordings made at the festival will also feature in other Paul Jones radio programmes in August as the special show approaches.
