Postponed from the 29th August 2020.
Following the success of the first year, Solid Entertainments are pleased to announce the second annual Bury St Edmunds Blues, Rhythm and Rock Festival at The Apex.Chantel McGregor, Dana Gillespie and the London Blues Band have been confirmed as this year's headliners!
Dana Gillespie and the London Blues Band
Blues and soul become inextricably entwined in award-winning singer-songwriter, Kyla Brox, whose raw talent has seen her described as “the finest female blues singer of her generation”. Winner of the 2018 UK Blues Challenge, Kyla has the honour of representing the UK in Memphis at the 2019 International Blues Challenge, as well as the European event in the Azores.
When Rivers Meet
Since bursting on to the UK Blues scene with their debut record ‘The Uprising EP’ in April 2019 followed by their second EP ‘Innocence Of Youth’ in May 2020, Grace and Aaron have been going from strength to strength. Their unique harmonic vocal-led approach to song writing, dirty electric guitar, slide resonator mandolin and fiddle create a unique distinctive and contemporary blues rock sound that echoes 1970s classic rock with hints of the 1930s blues that inspire them.
The Ryk Mead Band
The Ryk Mead Band are indeed a blues band, but by definition a lot more - they are a stunning power blues, jazz and rock trio. Guitar virtuoso, Ryk Mead heads up the band. He started a gigging career in the late 60s and has built a reputation on solid experience, gained alongside artists such as Dave Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet, The Pretty Things and Steve Waller (Manfred Man's Earth Band).
The Cinelli Brothers
The Cinelli Brothers is a project born out of a common passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the 60s and 70s, when brothers Marco (guitarist and lead singer) and Alessandro (drummer) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown.
