BLUES ON THE FARM FESTIVAL:
16th – 19th June 2016
One of the best-loved and friendly festivals anywhere, let alone on the ‘Blues Calendar’, the award-winning BLUES ON THE FARM FESTIVAL celebrates an incredible 25 years of music making where international acts of the highest quality converge on Pump Bottom Farm, south of Chichester in West Sussex from Thursday 16th June to Sunday 19th June 2016.
In keeping with the festivals finest traditions, a varied and eclectic line up of top quality acts loosely connected, but not limited to, the ‘Blues/Roots umbrella’ appear at this wonderful Sussex countryside setting.
This years festival sees the legendary Gary Brooker of Procol Harum fame headline proceedings on the Saturday night. Rather fittingly, since Gary Brooker’s presence at an impromptu garden gig gave rise to the idea of a festival in the very first place…
Here’s a video of Gary playing live in case anyone needs any reminding of his considerable talents
Other notable acts appearing over the four days include multi British Blues Award winners King King and Ian Siegal, plus the likes of Mike Sanchez, The Blues Band featuring Paul Jones (of BBC Radio 2 fame) and many, many more. Apart from the myriad of homegrown talent, The Billy Walton Band, Sari Schorr and the Engine Room plus The Hitman Blues Band featuring the New York Horns are all flying in from the USA to join the party. And with Brilleaux jetting in from New Zealand, this promises to be a really international affair.
