Performing at the
2017 Tenby Blues Festival
Tenby Blues Festival would like to thank all of you who helped make the 2017 festival and our 12th, one of the best ever. Such great music. Such a wonderful community vibe all over town. Thanks to the volunteers (without whom…), the sponsors, the artists, the technicians, the staff, the venues, the town council and local businesses
And of course you, the festival goers. We hope you enjoyed yourselves. Music brings people together. Much love.
NEXT YEAR’S FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE OVER THE WEEKEND OF 16th-18th NOVEMBER 2018.
Please note the 2018 festival takes place over the third weekend of November, not the second as has been the case in the past. This is because our main venue, the de Valence, is being used to hold an event commemorating 100 years since the end of WW1 on 11/11/2018. We are happy to make way for this as we should never forget those who made such sacrifices for us.
Lets not forget our fantastic, free, and unique Blues Trail which takes place all over our beautiful seaside town the same weekend. Unique?
Yes, because we are privileged to have so many performers who are good enough to grace the main stage at our festival (some have already done so), and at many other festivals, who agree to play at the smaller trail venues because they love our festival community vibe. We love them too. Here’s one example of the Blues Trail bands – the mighty Mark Pontin Group.
This year the Blues Trail is expanded to cope with the ever increasing numbers and features a mix of regular performers and newcomers. Some of the newcomers include Junior Hacksaw, Crawlback, The Bay Rum Hounds, Old Strafford, and Taffy Was A Thief.
Here are just some of the highlights from last year's festival.
