UKBlues Federation Become A Member Like Connie Lush
CONNIE LUSH BECOMES HONORARY MEMBER OF UKBLUES
We are both delighted and honoured to welcome the legend that is Connie Lush as an honorary member of the UK Blues Federation which will also see her being an Ambassador for UKBlues helping spread the word!
Connie needs little introduction to most on the UK blues scene where she is recognised as one of the finest Blues singers in the UK today having received many awards including five times “Best Female Vocalist UK” earning her a place in the Gallery of Greats, alongside Alexis Korner and Eric Clapton to name just two. Her incredible stage presence and powerful vocals have also been recognized overseas as she was twice voted “European Blues Vocalist of the year” by the “Blues Trophies Awards”. However, pride of place must go to her award from the people of Liverpool for “Performing Arts”. And that’s just to date!!
Connie is also known as a songwriter, DJ and unforgettable performer. She continues her love affair with audiences everywhere, bringing her enormous gusto for life and music wherever she goes! Blues is her business and business is good!
Recently, Connie was one of the panel of six who acted as judges at the 4th UK Blues Challenge which took place within walking distance of her Liverpool home at the legendary Cavern Club. She found being a judge a very hard job and great fun!
Talking about her new role Connie says ‘I feel very honoured and excited, to say the least!’
We at UKBlues are thrilled to have Connie on our team. She is such a significant figure on the UK blues scene and her association with us can only enhance both the profile and reputation of UKBlues.
We concur wholeheartedly with the late BB King who said of Connie: “That woman makes my heart sing”
NEW MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS FOR UKBLUES MEMBERS
25% DISCOUNT ON SKYFIRE PROMOTIONS PR CAMPAIGN:
As we announced a little while back, Rick Palin, Managing Director of the Skyfire Promotions Ltd group of companies, recently joined the Board of the UK Blues Federation and we are happy to announce an exclusive offer from Skyfire for UKBlues members.
A three month PR project with Skyfire normally costs £950.00. However, for members of the UK Blues Federation, Skyfire are offering a 25% standard discount off that price, permanently.
In addition, Skyfire will make a donation to UKBlues for each and every member who takes advantage of this offer so not only will members be getting a special deal but UKBlues will be receiving additional financial support to help us achieve our aims.
Rick comments: ‘’The UK Blues Federation as I see it is an important part of the future and past preservation of the heritage of blues music within the UK.
As a specialist in PR campaigns surrounding album launches, tour support and other areas Skyfire offers an extensive range of services with an 8-year trading history and impeccable references we certainly know the scene.
A PR campaign is vital to the success of getting your material out there to a worldwide audience of press and radio and if required we can even distribute but as most of you are aware this is sometimes a very costly process. Skyfire is geared towards helping support the artist and keeping the money where it firmly belongs, in the artist’s pocket.’’
To take advantage of this offer, you must be a member of the UK Blues Federation and details of how you can join can be found here.
