Tenby Blues Festival 2015

Headlining the 10th Tenby Blues Festival in Pembrokeshire over the weekend of Friday 13th - Sunday 15th November will be American Blind Boy Paxton and Jo Harman, recently voted ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ at the British Blues Awards.

For three days Tenby will rock to the sounds of blues and blues related music. One of the highlights of the festival, a free Blues trail on Saturday and Sunday around the seaside town’s many pubs, hotels and restaurants, has been expanded to meet its growing popularity.

A new event, Roots ‘n’ Shoots, has also been added to the programme at the Rugby Club on Saturday evening 14th November. It will feature artists influenced by the blues including rockabilly legend John Lewis and the goodtime Cajun/Zydeco band Whiskey River, plus Matt Woosey, who has been voted Acoustic Artist of the Year 2015 by Blues and Soul magazine.

Once again the De Valence venue will feature the headline acts. Blind Boy Paxton is the living embodiment of true blues in the 21st century playing ragtime, hokum, old-time, French reels, Appalachian mountain music, blues and more - whatever he performs sounds great. He’s witty, fast rhyming, poetic, fun, exciting, wonderfully skilled as a musician, and a fine singer.

Jo Harman is widely regarded as the most exciting and acclaimed artist to emerge in the European soul/blues scene in decades. The singer-songwriter/bandleader’s work is broadly influenced by blues, gospel, soul, country, rock and other ‘roots’.  Expect more than blues from Jo and her world class band as they perform a wide range of styles including song based soul, ballads, rock and more.
