Great audiences at Swanage Blues Festival

October 12th, 2014

Acoustic blues get great audience enjoyment

 

Playing both blues sets at Swanage Blues Festival on 2 nights, at 2 venues, were very different:

 

Friday 3 October at Tawny’s  was very lively and a brilliant night for a musician and audience to share…so many happy music lovers!!! Thanks to Tawny’s for the great meal and hospitality!

Saturday 4 October at Durlston Castle was much more intimate.

Live music in Bournemouth Surf Cafe

October 12th, 2014

Reef Encounter in Bournemouth put on live music every Friday

I’ll be performing a singer songwriter set there again on 17 October from 8 till 10pm; always a fun venue. It has been a good regular venue to perform at this year.

Swanage Blues Festival 2014

October 2nd, 2014

Swanage Blues and Roots Festival 2014

 

I’m very pleased to be performing 2 acoustic blues sets on 2 nights, at 2 venues:

Friday 3 October at Tawny’s
and
Saturday 4 October at Durlston Castle

 

It was such a fun and busy blues event to play at in February and is always well attended again at the October version of the blues festival in Swanage, Dorset. Great for locals and visitors! There are a wide variety of 60 gigs going on, by 30 different acts in 15 indoor venues, with some Open Mic and Jam Sessions also.

 

The dates are throughout 2, 3, 4, 5 October, and all organised by Steve Darrington. Swanage Blues Festivals take place in March and October each year and are known as The Best Blues Parties on the South Coast! It’s times like this I really enjoy being an Isle of Purbeck Musician, fingerstyle guitarist and singer songwriter and the blues is a great way to have the audience listen and get in to the music!
