The Damned and Dirty are one of the most exciting and innovative bands in the blues world today. Their first three albums have all won the award for “Best Blues Album” (presented by the Dutch Blues Foundation) three years in a row. Yes, this music comes out of Europe, but its inspiration comes from the heart of blues territory – it’s always interesting hearing blues coming from places other than where it was born. Interesting too to hear any variation the tyranny of distance offers up!
Blue Moon are a 4 piece Blues act based in South Shropshire. The band formed in 2015 after Slide Guitarist and Vocalist Jack Brett was looking to put a house band together for the successful ‘South Shropshire Blues Club’. With regular gigs in and around Shropshire, the band is now spreading its wings to audiences up and down the UK with an energetic and passionate live show. If you love The Blues you’ll love Blue Moon!

Do you need any Volunteers?
On the day we’re really relying on a small team of volunteers to help us out – we could do with a couple more helpers on the evening, just to man the gates for an hour or so.

We’ll be starting the clear up after breakfast at around 10am, any extra pairs of hands would be greatly appreciated.
