Tickets still available for Carlisle Blues Festival

Tickets are still available for next month’s Carlisle Blues Festival.

This year’s line-up has an international flavour, with bands and performers from the US, France, Poland, Ireland and Australia.

Nominated in the best festival category of the British Blues Awards for three years running, this year’s event is headlined by Ian Siegal with The Mississippi Mudbloods on the opening Friday night on November 9.

Ian is widely regarded as the jewel in the British Blues crown and his Mudbloods include Luther Dickinson whose day job is guitarist with the mighty Black Crows.

Saturday’s action ends with the fretwork fireworks of the brilliant Larry McCray from Arkansas, the US.

He beat fellow nominees Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton to the title of Orville Gibson Male Blues Guitarist of the Year in 2000.

Also featured on Saturday evening’s line-up is Mick Ralphs, founder member and guitarist of Bad Company and Mott The Hoople and there’s also an appearance from great Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash.

The big name on Sunday is Andy Fairweather Low with his band The Low Riders.

Andy shot to stardom in the late 1960s fronting Amen Corner who had a number one hit with (If Paradise is) Half As Nice.

Tickets are £30 or £45 per day, or £97.50 for the three days. Tickets from www.carlislebluesfestival.com.
