You have the ideal opportunity to put the depression of long winter nights behind you on February 25th when the Audlem Festival puts on yet another of their high quality events in Audlem Public Hall, and this one is serious quality. Headlining will be SLACK ALICE, a blues band who are to the north of the country what Climax Blues Band are to the Midlands — legendary! As Gary Hood, organiser of The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival stated: "Slack Alice are a band of great musical talent, both powerful and musically excellent with exceptional guitars and vocals. I've seen thousands of bands over the past 20 years — Slack Alice are up there with the best of them."
And the quality just goes on and on. Supporting Slack Alice will be those legends in their own lifetimes, Audlem's favourite outlaws, MAD DOG — yes Bryn and his gang will be on another rampage through the village -make sure you don't miss a minute of it.
To warm you up for the main events the evening starts off with a pair of Nottingham's finest outlaws, DONNY JOHNSON AND TIM DISNEY. This talented duo played Blues Alley and the Bridge during last year's Festival and gained many plaudits for their foot stomping mixture of country blues, delta and early Chicago styles.
Believe it or not tickets for this amazing evening are only £8! Tickets available now from 01270 812834, 07813820157 / 078221614782
All profits from ticketed Festival events go towards the free events that take place during the main Festival each year. If you enjoy the annual Festival, and wish it to continue, you need to support events such as the two winter concerts the Festival puts on — lack of support means the Festival will die.
