The Festival is certainly attracting a lot of newcomers with ticket pre-sales already beating all previous pre-sales with three weeks still to go.

Tickets have already been dispatched to Jersey, Gloucester, Ross-on-Wye, Tamworth and Yorkshire as well as many locally.

With that in mind, it is important that people wishing to buy tickets do so sooner rather than later as changes to licensing of such events has meant that the ticket numbers are strictly controlled to 470. As 550+ attended last year, we don’t want to disappoint genuine blues lovers with “Sold Out” signs.

The line-up has also recieved many favourable comments with firm northern favourites The Stumble headlining and the remarkable top 90s blues band The Producers making their northern come back at the event.

Retro 50/60s blues and rock ‘n’ rollers The Dirty Robbers open the evening session whilst Chester based Down At Antone’s deliver their classy blues act as afternoon headliners.

Other electric acts appearing are the nine piece Big Blues Tribe with a 5 piece brass section and a big, big sound and the very promising blues rock trio Papa Legba with the opening act a young 4 piece blues band Hopson, all still in the local 6th form college.

The acoustic acts are the superb touring Australian guitarist Rory Ellis who has an amazing baritone voice and is joined on lap steel guitar by Alex Roberts. Finally recent graduate from LIPA Naomi Mather who has been getting great reviews for her blues guitar playing and vocals completes a great line-up.
