North Wales Blues and Soul Festival

North Wales Blues and Soul Music Festival is set to return for its sixth year better than ever! This time around, the festival will be held at Theatr Clwyd in Mold and will take place over the weekend of 2-4 August 2019. The venue offers outdoor and indoor performance spaces, meaning the event is covered for whatever the Welsh weather has to throw at it!

Topping the bill is the multi award-winning Paul Lamb & The King Snakes; Paul Lamb is praised as one of the greatest harmonica players of our generation and has collaborated with The Who, Rod Stewart and Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler. In total, 18 acts have been confirmed and, as always, the line-up has been curated to showcase respected international artists alongside emerging talent. These acts include: Delta Moon (Atlanta-based group branded as “deep blues with a fury” by Vintage Guitar); James & Black (a Texan R&B/soul duo); Kyla Brox Band (described as “Manchester’s answer to Aretha Franklin” by Tony Wilson of Factory Records), Elles Bailey (a blues and country singer returning to the festival after an impressive performance in 2018) and The Stumble (making their North Wales debut with their energetic blend of blues, soul and old school R&B).

As well as the incredible music to enjoy, the festival features a range of fringe events, such as music workshops, and raises funds for national charity - Music for All - which provides instruments for young people who cannot afford to learn or keep playing music.
Also on offer: Real ales, boutique street food, onsite camping and glamping, and much more…

Tickets are now available from the Theatr Clwyd website (www.theatrclwyd.com).

Early Bird discounts are available and weekend tickets are on offer, as well as individual day tickets (starting at £5 for the Friday).

Friday: 5pm - 10pm Saturday: 12pm - 10pm Sunday: 12pm - 8:30pm

Bruce James and Bella Black joined musical forces in Austin, Texas in 2011 and have been on a mission spreading the word of 'Guerrilla Soul' ever since.

Elles Bailey

Elles Bailey appearing at this event

Elles Bailey has a talent for crafting and seamlessly weaving rootsy blues, country, and soulful rock, with a contemporary edge. What’s more fate has blessed her with a ‘smoky vocal’ style that perfectly fits her music, after a stint in hospital as a child changed her voice forever. Her debut album Wildfire (Sept 1st 2017) which debuted at no.2 in the iTunes blues Charts was produced by Brad Nowell and assembled a host of some of the worlds finest musicians, including Grammy Award winning guitarist Brent Mason and three-time ‘Musician Hall Of Famer’ Bobby Wood. Blended together with the likes of Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford, Matt Schofield) on Hammond organ and Joe Wilkins on blistering guitar, the result is a unique trans-Atlantic coming together of styles. Reviewers have been wowed by Elles and her debut album with Maverick Magazine gave ‘Wildfire’ top marks (5/5) calling every song ‘Fresh & Original’ And Blues In Britain reminding us that ‘It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage but Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now the product.’ 2018 starts with a bang with Elles playing the 100 club, London with The Climax Blues Band on the 17th January then heading north to play The Great British Rock & Blues Festival in Skegness before embarking on a European tour throughout March & April, May & June. “Every Song is Fresh and Original - 5/5*” - Maverick Magazine "It’s a fact that very few make it to the big stage; Elles Bailey has the necessary talent, the drive, and now (with the release of album Wildfire) the product" - Blues in Britain “Wildfire - A Scorching Debut Album” Blues Matters “One of the Best Of British Albums of the year” Country Music Magazine "A childhood illness gave her a remarkable tool and she uses it to its very best effect. One of the best things I've heard" Music News "A Young woman blessed with an incredible voice" Powerplay Magazine "A hugely impressive debut album" Dancingaboutarchitecture “So, to sum up, not just a very impressive debut album from Elles Bailey, a very impressive album full stop. FATEA "With Shades of the late Dusty Springfield... A genuine triumph / wonderful offering" Elmore Magazine

Rob Heron & His Tea Pad Orchestra

Rob Heron & His Tea Pad Orchestra appearing at this event

These six young hipsters from Newcastle Upon Tyne play a foot stompin’ blend of early 20th century American music. With razor-sharp solos, great arrangements and original songs, they hark back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. Frontman Rob Heron is a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire and good old fashion hollerin’. Expect themes of debauchery, disasters, drink and debt. An eclectic mix of hokum blues, ragtime, western swing, gypsy-jazz, cajun and country roots.
