Latest line-up announcements for blues & soul acts!

The blues and soul line-up is getting stronger by the minute with these two latest additions.

The mesmerising voice of Joanna Cooke can be heard on Saturday in the Harbour Bar at the Royal Castle Hotel. Inspired by legends such as Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald and Bessie Smith, her versatility and soul shine through. You can also catch her session on BBC Introducing in Devon.

If you’ve seen The Primitive Noise Band live before and witnessed Becky Brine singing her heart out for all she’s worth, you’ll realise this isn’t just another “newcomer” bank on the scene. This is a scorching collaboration between some of the UK’s firebrands of blues, rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly and jazz. One day playing a dive, lucky to get out alive, the next playing The Royal Albert Hall and everything in between, make sure you see them on The Bandstand on Sunday.
