The York Blues Music Festival

Putting on a Blues Festival in their home City of York is something that DC Blues had talked about doing for a while, it’s not something that they have attempted to do before but were spurred in to action following some devastating news when a very close friend & their partner tragically lost their baby at birth. As friends they felt helpless but knew they could attempt to do something positive and music is something they are good at. The Blues Festival is for charity and DC Blues are donating all profits to Charlies Angel Centre Foundation who do fantastic work in providing counselling and supporting bereaved parents.

The event is taking place on Saturday 6th April 2019 at The Crescent Community Venue in York from 1pm-11pm. After putting out a message on Social Media there was an astounding amount of interest from people who wanted to attend as well as over 200 applications from Blues Bands from all over the World who wanted to play.

The bands playing are:-

Mike Darwin
Steve Fulsham Band
TC Blues Band
Dogfinger Steve
Emma Wilson Blues Band
Miles Gilderdale
DC Blues
The Achievers (headlining)

Keep your eyes and ears peeled as there will be more information to come on TRR over the next few months as well as a live session from DC Blues in the new year!
