The 6th UK Blues Challenge Takes Place This Weekend…

11th September 2019
Big I Am

The UK Blues Challenge 2019 is taking place this Saturday, 14th September.

The challenge has been going for six years and this year will feature the incredible musicianship of Ash Wilson, The Crossfire Blues Band, Connor Selby, The Achievers… plus chosen via the Jessica Foxley Stages at this year’s Colne Festival: Little Triggers.

All this will commence at Bluefunk Rhythm and Blues Club in Cheshire. Doors open at 6:30pm. The last few seated tickets remain (standing tickets are also available) and can be purchased here.

Each year, the #UKBluesFederation organises a #UKBluesChallenge to choose a band or artist to represent the UK at the annual #InternationalBluesChallenge organised by the The Blues Foundation, held in #Memphis every January and at the #EuropeanBluesChallenge organised by the European Blues Union.

Five bands will go head to head in Saturday’s challenge. One of the judges will be Naomi Crewe Ctc from Colne Town Council – who have organised and managed the blues festival in Colne for the past 3 years.
