The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival - We're 'Nurturing Talent'

Tuesday, 30th May 2017

Jason Elliott, festival director explains -

"Our aim is to maximise opportunities for the up-coming acts playing our event. As examples:

One of the 'winners' of the Jessica Foxley Unsigned competition will be chosen to play the main stage at next years event.

One of the buskers seen entertaining you throughout the town of Colne during the weekend of the event will be chosen to play one of next years' stages.

One of the roadhouse acts will be 'moved up' to play one of the main stages...

And so it continues...

This event is bursting with talent, some of it as yet undiscovered. We're proud to be showcasing and cultivating such a wide variety of musicianship and to help - in any small way - them achieve, succeed and thrive".
