                                                                                23rd - 25th AUGUST

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!

The band that The Mid Wales Rhythm and Blues club will be taking to the main stage at Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival in Colne on the weekend of 23rd to 25th August 2019 is..... The Troy Redfern Band!!! 2


The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival

is dubbed 'Europe’s best contemporary blues festival' and attracts 15,000 to 20,000 people to Colne in Lancashire over the bank holiday weekend. It's celebrating it's 30th Anniversary in 2019 and in doing so is introducing a new feature. Four renowned live music clubs - one from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales - will each choose an act from their region, which best represents their club and the blues music of the area, to appear on a main stage at the festival

The Club representing Wales is....

The Mid Wales Rhythm & Blues Club!

To say we are honoured to have been selected as the Club to represent Wales is a understatement!

Now all we have to do is select the act that we are going to be introducing on a main stage at The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival in 2019... And that is where you come in.

We would like your help in selecting the act

What we're looking for is an Welsh act (it can be a solo artist or a band) that people will flock to see playing on a main stage at the festival. They can be an act that has already played at The Mid Wales R & B club or a new act to The Mid Wales R & B club. Then when you've decided who you'd like us to take to Colne in 2019 just click the 'Vote' button below. Voting runs until Friday 26th October 2018 - so hurry! We'll then collate all your votes and (subject to a few conditions - outlined below) will endeavour to get the most requested act onto the stage at Colne!

But that's not all

We will also use your votes to decide who to invite to play at The Mid Wales R & B club in 2019!

While you can vote for who ever you want those 'conditions' or things to bear in mind are:

Both The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival and The Mid Wales R & B Club work to a budget. We are unlikely to be able to afford Tom Jones!

In order to have some variance in their line up bands who've recently played at The Festival may be discounted by the organisers - though that should not stop you voting as they may well get a coveted spot at The Mid Wales R & B club!

We'll contact all the acts you select but everything will, of course, hinge on their availability over the dates in question - though if you don't see them going to Colne your vote might get them to The Mid Wales R & B club.

You can vote for as many acts as you wish - but duplicate votes (i.e. the same email address voting repeatedly for the same act) will be discarded. So just be sensible!

In voting we will add your email address to our mailing list - this is only used to send you news of The Mid Wales R & B Club and is kept securely. If you don't want to be added or want to stop receiving emails at any time just let us know and that is it.

Now just click the 'Vote' button. An email should open - type in the act you would like us to take to Colne and click send!
