New Brunswick Battle Of The Blues – entries open now

You may (or may not) remember that last year I was a judge at the Glasgow heat of this great contest. I was also invited to the final at the 100 Club in London, for a night of great music.

24 Pesos were the well deserved winners that night, and they recently returned from their gigs in New Brunswick at The Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival.
Says Julian Burdock from the band; ‘The competition is a fantastic opportunity for emerging or established British blues artists to raise their profile, play on a world stage – and experience the wonders of the Canadian maritime province that is New Brunswick!’

Entries are open from October 15th to December 15th for this year’s contest. All of the entry details are here and I’m certainly going to go to the heat that is local to me, at St. Peter’s Club in Byker, Newcastle.

I’ll be bringing you updates as the contest progresses.

Details of heats:

13th January, True Blues Club, Newton Le Willows 
18th January, The Thunderbolt, Bristol 
19th January, New Crawdaddy Blues Club, Billericay
27th January, Byker & St Peters Social Club, Newcastle
