Great article via the Lancashire Telegraph – link below – and here’s a snippet:
Community Rail Lancashire have come on board with the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, becoming an associate partner of the event.
As part of the deal, a special train will bring music lovers from Preston, Lancashire, picking up at stations, as it travels through East Lancashire on the afternoon of Friday, August 25.
A blues artist will be performing live on board… and refreshments will also be available.

We’re totally stoked to have Ten Years After as replacements for King King for our Sunday night headline slot.
Gutted to lose Alan Nimmo and the lads of course (due to health issues, hopefully they will be back in action soon).
But, for all you King King fans – don’t worry – we’ve provisionally booked the band for next years event!
