23rd – 25th AUGUST 2019
1 GREAT FESTIVAL
THERE IS MUCH LOVE FOR THE BLUES FESTIVAL HERE IN COLNE
From the friends who grew the musical idea – from one venue in 1990, to the multi-staged festival showcasing artists from around the world in 2019 – The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival has grown into an internationally recognised event, not least within the blues-based musical genre.
Here, long time festival supporter and festival photographer, Brian Smith, shares his thoughts for this year’s festival, and just some of his festival flyer collection from over the years.
“Very encouraging news of the festival’s ’30 year’ line up! It looks a good blend of exciting new talent and a couple of really solid and dependable early favourites among the headliners, which was always Colne’s hallmark”.
