Topic: Tyneside Americana Blues Festival 2024

In a reaction to the closure of the Skegness Rock & Blues festival last year, a good mate of mine and several contacts have come up with their own way to chase off the January Blues by presenting some Blues of their own.

The 3 day even will take place in the Crescent Club, ( NE30 4PN) on the sea front in the town or Cullercoats, which is basically a horse-shoe shaped bay nestling between the resort towns of Tynemouth and Whitley Bay, about 10 miles east of Newcastle.
