While I’m plugging good causes…
I’ve certainly mentioned before the Farmhouse Blues Day at Wheathill Court Farm, near Burwarton, on Saturday 30th July 2016. Post code WV16 6QT. But I’m more than happy to mention it again: after all, profits go to Cancer Research UK. Sadly, although I’m in Shropshire that week, I have to start for home before it starts. It’s an excellent bill, well worth the £20 for a ticket for the whole day.
Organizer Moz tells us that
The best way to find the farm is to take the Ludlow to Bridgnorth Road (B4364) and turn by the side of the Three Horseshoes Pub and the farm is about one mile on the left. There should be lots of sign posts with arrows pointing where to go, unless we get sabotaged again like we were 2 years ago!
If the weather’s bad, they have a nice big barn to transfer into.
Planned final line up will be as follows, roughly divided into two sections for administrative reasons:
- 2.00 pm till 3.00pm. Lucy Howells Band.
- 3.15pm till 4.15pm. Jack Brett with Blue Moon and special guests.
- 4.30pm till 5.30pm. Pistol Pete Wearn.
- 6.00pm till 7.00pm. Tetrachords.
- 7.15pm till 8.15pm. Tom Walker Trio.
- 8.30pm till 10.00pm. Stevie Nimmo Trio. Plus encores.
Please note this playing order may be subject to change and times are approximate because of changeover times and sound check times.
