25th Swanage Blues Festival

January 29th, 2016

25th Swanage Blues Festival to take place in March 2016

Playing the blues

Swanage Blues is a not for profit organisation, that twice a year brings a lot of exciting live music to Swanage; in March and October, thousands of blues music fans turn the town into a mini New Orleans.

 

A wristband for £10 gives access to the live music events throughout the town. The festival is still free really but people kindly buy at least one weekend wristband for £10 to help cover costs of organising Swanage Blues Festival. We can thank Steve Darrington for all that great work!

 

It is a top festival and I’ve played for a few years now and it always affords me a chance to catch up with people I haven’t seen for a while, or who come back to every festival. Playing 2 sets is fun; both of which are quite different and give me loads of space to explore the bluesy side of the acoustic guitar.

 

Swanage Blues Festival is on 3, 4, 5, 6 March 2016. I will be performing on Friday 4th March at 6pm and then again at 8.15pm.

It is recommended to book in advance, as Tawny’s is one of the venues that puts on both music and great food.

Address: 52 High St, Swanage, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset BH19 2NX
