The popular coastal resort of Tenby in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales will play host to the town’s Blues Festival over the weekend of Friday 8th – Sunday 10th November with numerous bands appearing in several venues.
Expect a mix of international and UK-based acts, including some of the finest Welsh bands, playing full on electric blues and old time acoustic blues plus music from where the blues touches base with other genres.
Headlining the main venue, the De Valence, on the Saturday evening, will be Bernard Allison, the guitar-playing, singing and song writing son of the late, legendary blues guitarist Luther Allison.
Other artists appearing include Marcus Malone, the Hideaway Trio, Innes Sibun Band, Big Mamma’s Door and Miraculous Mule.
The popular Tenby Blues Pub Trail, two days of free music in the clubs, pubs, bars, and restaurants of Tenby from noon until midnight, will also be repeated this year. Throw in late night sessions when the performers chill out with impromptu jams that often extend in to the next morning, and you have a recipe for a great weekend.
