Cognac Blues Festival 3-8 July 2012

The dates for the 2012 Cognac Blues Festival have been announced and we are delighted that the festival will run during the week of our Blues and Beyond Electric Guitar Workshop (1-7 July)  with Richard Perkins.

The headline acts won’t be announced until the spring – keep an eye on the website but over the last 18 years they have attracted many good acts – BB King to Eric Bibb, the Neville Brothers and Seal just to name a few. The beauty of the festival is that there is free live music all day in a variety of bars around the town, as well as the  ticket only headline bands in the evening in the park.  We will aim to get into Cognac on the Wednesday afternoon, which is a free period, to catch some blues and a beer. I’m sure Richard will organise the timetable so we can go in again if people are keen.

There is no doubt that the chance to see some live free  music locally will make the week even more enjoyable.
