North Wales Blues & Soul Festival – Sunday overview by Rosy Greer
Posted on: Monday, Aug 3, 2015
Here’s a nice overview of Sunday at the festival from our good friend Rosy Greer. Hopefully we’ll get a full review posted in the next couple of days.
Overview for the NORTH WALES BLUES & SOUL FESTIVAL @ Mold, Wales. Sunday 2nd August 2015
I only managed to get to the Sunday session of this three day event. From what I heard, the previous two days were power packed and everyone had a fabulous time watching and listening to some class musicians.
The highlights for me on this breezy Sunday, were the ‘Matt Wolff Band’, ‘Brothers Groove’, ‘Clem Curtis & The Foundations’ and of course ‘King King’. We arrived too late to see the Alex McKown Band, so another time.
Matt Wolff Band were new to me, but gave a great performance of country rock, blues and Americana.
Brothers Groove are probably one of the best bands on the circuit, delivering their own individual style of blues funk. Kicking off with ‘Cissy Strut’, they continued with many of their self penned numbers from the excellent album ‘Play The Game’. For me, they are a band who never disappoint.
Clem Curtis & The Foundations – Wow! What a blast from the past. Clem Curtis, from the original Foundations, now in his 75th year, gave a strong performance to an enthusiastic crowd. A great big band sound playing some of the old classics.
King King as always, a brilliant performance from this top class band.
The atmosphere was great and so was the organisation of the event. Well done to the sound man, an excellent job done. Not a huge festival but it was nice to be able to get up close to the stage. It open air so it was bring your own chairs, but they provided large gazebos if it did decide to rain. The festival also had a good variety of beers.
Some great acts for not a great amount of money, so well recommended for next year’s festival list!!!!
