On Sunday’s event, Leeds Blues Festival organiser, and promoter at Solid Entertainments, Stephen Stanley said:
“I’m really looking forward to seeing the live audience back after 15 months of lockdowns and Covid.
“We want to make this an annual event in Leeds the same as we have in several other areas over the last 10 years; we want to keep blues, rhythm and rock music alive for years to come.”
This weekend’s festival marks the first time the event has been brought to Leeds, with all six artists curated to demonstrate some of the best on offer in the UK blues scene.
Leeds Blues, Rhythm and Rock Festival kicks off at Brudenell Social Club at 2pm on Sunday, with tickets available for purchase in person at Crash and Jumbo Records, or online from Ticketweb or Seetickets.
