Stowmarket set to feel the rhythm with the 7th annual StowBlues Festival
The ever-popular StowBlues festival returns on Saturday 10th June 2017, with an electric line-up of 7 live bands, bringing a taster of authentic Americana Blues to Suffolk.
Live acts include singer-songwriter Paolo Morena, the stunning vocals of Malaya Blues and firm StowBlues favourites Back Porch, all ready to bring a unique and unmissable blend of Blues, Delta Blues, uptempo Rock, Roots and Rock and Roll.
Organised in conjunction with BBC Radio Suffolk and compered by DJ Stephen Foster, the event has been able to attract a succession of quality bands. The event also benefits from the expertise of Mike Rushmore, a well-known name in the East Anglian Blues scene.
‘StowBlues is a really important fundraiser for the museum, with funds raised going straight back into the care and upkeep of the museum. StowBlues is a fantastic community event, with 7 brilliant bands who help to create the atmosphere that StowBlues has become well known for’ says Patsy Cane, Visitor Services Manager.
With a CAMRA supported real ale bar, the event hosts a selection of ales from brewers from across the region including Calvors, Earl Soham Brewery and Colchester Town Brewery.
There will also be a selection of food available throughout the day, providing a fun festival atmosphere throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
NB: No form of alcohol brought in from off the premises is permitted at the festival.
Booking information: £10.00 ticket per person on the day, £8 in advance. Tickets are available now from Stowmarket Tourist Information Centre and online at: www.eastanglianlife.org.uk
