We are totally pleased and proud to announce the 2019 headliners (well almost). 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. Our now legendary Blues Triple Bill is on Saturday 20th featuring The Chris Bevington Organisation, Rebecca Downes and the highly accomplished Robbie McIntosh.
Sunday at The Civic is yet to be announced, we’re raring to tell you but can’t, just expect something amazing and a bit different. We hope to confirm a booking in The Crown Ballroom for the Friday evening too.
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.
The Round the Town programme is coming together nicely with Festival venues featuring stronger lineups on each day and improved facilities. Keep an eye out for some warm-up gigs in the run up to Easter too.
Nantwich Jazz Blues & Music Festival has been held over Easter every year since 1997, will be from 18th to 22nd April 2019 and looks forwards to welcoming music fans old and new.
