Little piece of Mississippi Delta arrives as Blues on the Farm heads our way

This weekend will be a true celebration of an incredible 25 years of music making, when international acts of the highest quality converge on the farm.

 

Blues On The Farm attracts a wide audience for it’s excellent line up, but also for its special countryside location, a handful of miles from both the seafront in one direction and the beautiful Sussex town of Chichester in the other.

 

This year’s ‘from-the-old-school’ lineup includes blues legends like Gary Brooker (Procol Harum) and friends, Ian Siegal, Stevie Nimmo and more.

 

The festival doesn’t ignore the upcoming young guns of the blues, of course – bands like The Bushman Brothers, Idlewood, and Red Butler among others, take to the stage for a perfect afternoons entertainment.

 

Other notable acts appearing include multi-British Blues Award winners King King, The Blues Band featuring Paul Jones (of BBC Radio 2 fame), The Billy Walton Band, Sari Schorr and the Engine Room (New York) plus Brilleaux (New Zealand); this promises to be a really international affair.

 

In addition to this and as part of the 25th Anniversary celebrations, various impromptu ‘pop up’ performances are planned to take place during the Saturday and Sunday of the festival.

 

Expect, among other audible treats, an incredible foot-stomping rootsy-blues duo found busking on the streets of Brighton Festival, intimate low-key performances from under-the-radar musicians, exceptional performances from very special guests  and all kinds of musical experiences in between.

 

Look out for these impromptu shenanigans around the festival site… an extra 25th anniversary treat for this year’s festival goers! To find out more or to buy tickets visit www.bluesonthefarm.co.uk
