SOMETHING EXTRA

SATURDAY

2:00pm – SONGWRITING WORKSHOP – MINI MUNI

Richard Townend holds a special songwriting workshop at this year’s event.
The workshop will be open to all levels of ability, from seasoned musicians to non-musicians and absolute beginners; all are welcome.
Expect a condensed workshop: playing of a song, discussing the song and the elements needed for a song, with the ‘audience’/workshop members fully involved.
Richard also plans to write a song with help from the members in the workshop group.

12:00pm – HALF DEAF CLATCH – THE LITTLE THEATRE

Ladies and Gentlemen prepare yourself for an acoustic blues experience you will not forget in a hurry! Half Deaf Clatch – noted UK bluesman and purveyor of the critically acclaimed concept albums ‘The life and Death of A.J Rail’ and ‘CrowSoul’- will be bringing a brand-new blues stage show to Colne. Written especially for the festival and performed as an audio-visual experience different to anything you’ve seen before, this production will also tie in with the release of his next full-length album based on the show.
Yet this will be so much more than your average album launch; seeing and hearing will most certainly be believing. The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival will be the only place to hear this performance before the album’s release. Make sure you come along to witness this exclusive event!
