Topic: Hartlepool "Hallelujah" Blues Festival

If you can't get the man to Skeggy; bring Skeggt to the man....

The guy that puts the best into Hartlepool, Tommy, is organising the town's first Blues festival - November 12th, 13th & 14th - all being well....

Hartlepool’s 1st Blues Festival is looking like this:-

Friday 12th Nov:-
Kyla Brox Band
Gerry Jablonski Band

Saturday 13th:-
Billy Walton Band
Ian Siegal (solo)
The Achievers
Jupiter Blues Band

Sunday 14th:-
Malone/Sibun Band
The Cinelli Brothers
Troy Redfern Band
Robert J Hunter Band

At the moment, “Weekend Tickets” only at £100 and for the time being, limited to 100. This price though is fixed; as the time approaches, more bands may be added and “day” tickets may become available depending on what restrictions Chairman Boris may impose.

All those who believe in psychokenesis raise my hand........

Well, I'd start hitting YouTube if I were you - it's a pretty good, if somewhat cherry-picked roster.

Re: Hartlepool "Hallelujah" Blues Festival

UPDATE:- 1st batch of 100 tickets is now SOLD OUT.  Don’t lose hart though (geddit?) it’s not until November, so should recent restrictions be lifted, more tickets will be available; just not at £100…

Didn't they just put out that you can only be in groups of 6 or less?  Sounds like things are getting tighter not opening up.

Also, what's everybody wearing to the 1 year anniversary of the 14 day lockdown to flatten the curve wearing?  Asking for a friend....

Re: Hartlepool "Hallelujah" Blues Festival

I'll be wearing double masks....but let's not go there here please

That is a great line-up. I've not heard of some but I regularly gives thanks for this forum and Joe for having turned me onto so many great artists I probably wouldn't have otherwise known about.

Re: Hartlepool "Hallelujah" Blues Festival

well I do know Billy Walton, Ian S, and Troy Redfern so 3 out of 10 ain't bad for someone living in Alabama (country music hell). At this point any festival is a huge step in the right direction, thumbs up. Alas, I am in the extremely high risk category for Covid and cannot get vaccinated just yet, would have to pass if I was over the pond for any reason

I remember pi R Squared in math class ............. wait, I know for sure Junior Sample told Grandpa "Pie are round, Cornbread are square"

Re: Hartlepool "Hallelujah" Blues Festival

UPDATE:-

Virgil and the Accelerators have been added to Friday
True Strays duo have been added to Saturday
Crow Black Chicken have been added to sunday

40 more tickets made available @ £110. ( if social distancing is relaxed)

IF things go to the "route-map" as outlined last week for the UK, all the Covid limiting measures will be lifted in mid-June, though I expect to see loads of people still wearing masks until Christmas at least.

Bars & venues won't be open for indoor trade until mid-May, so between May & June the "rule of 6" will still apply. There were similar variations on this back in October/November, before lockdown that were a real nuisance.  As a rule,  I go to gigs on my own,  and meet-up with friends there, however at most venues I wouldn't have been able just to buy a ticket, I'd have to book a table (of 4). This would then prevent others going to the gigs as there was instructions that members of 2 or more households couldn't mix, so if I were to invite friends, they'd have to be a couple and to avoid the "spare" I'd have to drag my partner along.....

A good festival bill should be one part bands you really love; one part bands you've been wanting to catch and one part "if they're rubbing shoulders with this lot then they're worth checking out"; and a dash of "well I need to go to the loo/bar sometime."
