I’d be keeping an eye on the Durham & Cleethorpes Blues fests in June.

Not fully set in stone, but names being thrown about include; Walter Trout, Stevie Nimmo Trio, Jo Harman, Spellkasters, Laurence Jones. Gotta be worth £23 (early bird price) of anyone’s money.

Hope Layla finds the opportunity to do some “warm-up” gigs in the UK before Maryport.

Ryan McG is also down for the Linton festival in June.

Another for those of us @oop’t North:-

Jumpin’ Hot Jamboree Festival - Sat 21st Jun - Sun 22nd Jun

Mary Jean Lewis; The Low Men; Toy Hearts; David Broad; Serious Sam Barrett; The Cornshed Sisters
Big Red And The Grinners; Skylark Song.

Shame about the clash with Durham Blues Festival 4, the same week-end, but should attract lovers of more folksy Americana than rockin’ blues.

Solid Entertainments have altered the bill for upcoming Durham & Cleethorpes Festivals in light of Walter Trout’s illness. Instead of bringing in a new headliner, they’ve promoted Royal Southern Brotherhood up to top billing.
