About this event
Head to the The Castle Hotel on Saturday 13th April for a celebration of the best blues and blues inspired artists around, where there will be over twelve amazing acts playing throughout the day.
Ruby Tuesday are a two piece two piece bluesy rock band. Formed in early 2011 the two piece band decided to go on their own after playing in the Manchester music scene with several established bands. Finding mutual influences in the likes of The Doors, Dead Weather, The Kills, Dylan
Ruby Tuesday tour dates
The Rag N Bone Man is a one man band from the bowels of Scotland. Amped up explosive adrenaline fuelled, one man band brutal trash blues.
The Rag n' Bone Man tour dates
Black Ribbons met over a mutual love of music and cheap cider. It was a match made in musical heaven. They have been influenced by everything and anything and they're dark folk and blues sound compliments each lyric as it tells a story.
Black Ribbons tour dates
Hopper Propelled Electric started out on the road much like any other outfit. A trail of bands that have gone before, a handful of songs and the resolve to rock & roll.
One guy trying to keep the dearly loved blues in pocket, punk on a leash, spouting high octane tales about driving, drinking (but never at the same wheel), love, hate, nights in police cells and crooked characters..
Hopper Propelled Electric tour dates
The greatest death blues band this side of the Delta. Heavy, brutal, primal, direct, and yet sublimely beautiful, this band drags you by your throat from the plantations of the 1860s Deep South via the jails and chain gangs of the Great Depr
ession and throws you face down among burning rubble and charred corpses of the Rhythm Night Club, Natchez Mississippi. These guys tried to sell their souls to the devil at the crossroads. He couldn’t afford them, so they are going to give you a piece for free instead.
Bleak tour dates
Hillbilly rock from Manchester with cloth caps and waistcoats. Good time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind.
Dr Butler's Hatstand Medicine Band tour dates
This is everything the blues should be! His bare bones style and innate sense of the perfect riff - the dirty distorting bass string rhythms, the bends on the high notes and the loosely picked chords - echo those legends of the pre rock'n'roll era.
Jim Adama tour dates
Enemies Eyes are a Manchester-based band who play dark, alternative, gritty rock and roll.
Enemies Eyes tour dates
Drum n guitar 'scuzz blooze' 2 piece.
'Essentially they take the simple playing style and complex emotive quality of old blues legends like Son House and Willie Dixon and turn it all the way up until it's about to break' - High Voltage.
Euchrid Eucrow tour dates
Manchester band with a groovy bass driven rock, pop and roll sound that has hints of Supergrass, The Small Faces and Buzzcocks.
'The Meaning of Loyalty' is a fine piece of dark hued punk pop (like a late period Buzzcocks LP track indeed). 'New York City Blues' is like The Kinks getting duffed over by Kings of Leon via a smidge of Ramonery. 'Sarah' hints at early White Stripes (before they became Dead Zep). A great jerk and quirk garage pop nugget.
Hey Bulldog tour dates
These four lads leap into a set of irreverent blues punk that instantly has your eyes glued to the stage. Each member is capable of capturing your attention, be it their showmanship, sheer talent or intriguing penmanship in songs - they all reserve their right to be a Dirty Vagrant.
Dirty Vagrants tour dates
