This is the first year we have organised a festival since the sad loss of our founder Phillip Martin and we hope you like our principal selections. Making a welcome return is Martin Turner, the ex Wishbone Ash bass player who visits with his band on the Wishbone Gold tour. Friday sees the legendary Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden on stage with his band including local chap Jim Kirkpatrick. They are supported by the Excellent Brum Blues Rockers Big Wolf Band. We also see a welcome and long overdue appearance from The Tom Seals Band in the Crown Hotel Ballroom.
Our now legendary Blues Triple Bill is on Saturday 20th featuring The Chris Bevington Organisation, Rebecca Downes and the highly accomplished Robbie McIntosh. We also see a welcome and long overdue appearance from The Tom Seals Band in the Crown Hotel Ballroom.
Sunday at The Civic features the iconic 90s pop band Cast. With hits such as Fine Time and Walk Away a splendid poptastic evening is in prospect. Suuprt is fron up and coming solo artiste Ryan Sparrow.
Monday the 22nd April sees our ever popular 5pm Nearly Dan show go ahead in The Studio, always a sell out and at The Civic Chris Helme and his band take to the stage. A member of the post Stone Roses Seahorses Chris appears with his band. We also welcome local 80s/90s indie band The Train Set who were very much on the North West scene back in the day
