2011 has began and it looks like it's non-stop for Chris.

He starts touring early in January with German mates the Hamburgers, continuing the '
Mad Dog blues tour' in Germany from last year. Then in February, it's back with old friends, The Norman Beaker Band.  Later the same month Chris sets out on a massive (over 3 months in duration!) tour with the "Solid Silver 60's Show",  then starting in June it's back with Colosseum again for some European gigs, and then ending the season with the NBB. There is also the odd extra gig here and there through out the year, phew!!! (How does he do it!)...

The Yorkshire Blues Festival - Sat 30th April, Sun 1st May and bank holiday Mon 2nd May 2011.

The festival celebrates the unique influence early British Blues has had on the world music scene, its history and culture. Taking its influence from Delta Blues, or the blues form common in jazz, rhythm & blues, and rock and roll, it developed a style all of its own.

Alexis Korner Memorial Stage (of Buxton Opera House fame in the past) is curated by Norman Beaker. Norman and the Norman Beaker Band are also playing with Larry Garner on Saturday, Jack Bruce and a host of friends on Sunday and with Chris Farlowe on Monday.

Click here to find out more about the
Yorkshire Blues Festival, including acts, stages, bars and line-up.

Tickets prices for the festival are £36 per day, £67 for 2 days or £98 for a weekend.

VIP seats are available for the main hall only at £118 for a weekend numbered ticket. These are available on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis. There is also a disabled area. All tickets allow access to all public areas of the festival.
