Opening gig of the 2019 Biddulph Festival tonight in what is fast becoming the town’s favourite venue...a delicious slice of R&B; Biddulph Up In Arms continuing the association with Congleton Jazz and Blues. This is the return leg after our hugely successful foray across the border in late February when Megan Dixon Hood and John Dhali were the featured artists. Tonight CRY BABY & THE HOOCHIE COOCHIE BOYS will be joined by ROBIN PIERCE in solo acoustic mode and we have several boxes of Biddulph Festiv-ale (courtesy of Cheshire Brewhouse) to get the party started. Plenty of room in the church so come along and pay at the door with a modest ticket price of £6.

Thanks to Vince Cutcliffe and the team for a great festival, had the pleasure of watching The Four Kings Blues Band, The Sharpees, Junkhousedog and Dirk Digglers before playing with the Malpractice boys at the Ye Olde White Lion. Don't tell Nantwich but this was our favourite festival so far. Hope to see you all next year.
