Programme Launch 23rd August 2019

This Friday from 8pm, is the 2019 Leek Blues & Americana Festival programme launch at the Cock Inn, Derby Street. Tickets will be available for the small number of ticketed gigs during the festival (don’t forget the vast majority of events in the festival are free to enter) and collect a programme to plan your itinerary for the 2nd – 6th October with over 70 performances to choose from.

The launch event will be headlined by Bill and the Belles who have captured the freewheeling, lighthearted approach to music that has endeared them to listeners of every generation. With a spirited sound that falls somewhere between old-time country and vaudeville, the group puts its own spin on a golden era of music, specifically the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s.
