There's fantastic live music in Audlem today. Top billing at the Audlem Arts & Music Festival is 'Lights Out By Nine', an 8 piece Soul/R&B outfit from Scotland that is making waves south of the border. They have already released two acclaimed albums and will be playing a mixture of old classics and excellent self penned numbers in the Public Hall. The Festival programme says "You can keep your Commitments, your Blues Brothers tribute bands, yea they can entertain but Lights Out By Nine are the real deal — if you can dance and dance, do not miss this one... you'll only regret it.. for ever!"
The support band is Afro Blue who play laid back jazz and soul — just right to chill to before you hit the dance floor with 'Lights Out By Nine'.
Tickets are £12 — you can simply pay on the door or telephone 01270 812834 or 07813 820157 or 07821 614782. Doors open at 8.15pm and Afro Blue are on stage at 9.00pm.
Bands are playing throughout the village today with 'Back Row Plus' on stage in the morning at 10.30am outside the Methodist Church while in the pubs local favourite Jim Kirkpatrick leads Heavy Weather at 9.00pm in the Shroppie Fly and Terra Plane Blues, a duo playing acoustic blues ranging from Skip James to Muddy waters is playing at the Lord Combermere.
