Scarborough TOP SECRET Blues Festival

Scarborough TOP SECRET Blues Festival


Scarborough's not so TOP SECRET Blues Festival continues to expand every year and sell out every year.

In 2020 it will be a truly International Festival with many bands from the USA, including the incredible Grammy Award winning blues and gospel singer Mike Farris. The weekend will also include the UK Premier (and possible only UK appearance) of Kaz Hawkins' magnificent new stage show Memories of Etta, first performed at the Cognac Blues Festival, France, in July 2019.

The festival is also taking over the whole of the Spa Scarborough in 2020, allowing us to promote an extensive programme of the very best Blues, R&B, Classic Soul, Americana, and Roots Music in TWO comfortable venues; the Spa Grand Hall AND The Ocean Room.

All performances are coordinated to ensure no clashes, so no need to miss any of the incredible artists we have booked.

In addition to Kaz Hawkins and Mike Farris the full line up includes:

The Billy Walton Band (USA)
Kyla Brox
Grainne Duffy (IRL)
Elles Bailey
Marcus Malone & Innes Sibun
Dog MacLeod (USA)
The Climax Blues Band
Joel Fisk & Jon Amor
The Guy Tortora Band (UK / USA)
Big Red & The Grinners
Bronwynne Brent (USA)
The Spikedrivers (UK / USA)
The Cinelli Brothers (ITA)
TC & The Moneymakers
The Rainbreakers
The Revolutionaires
Chris James & Martin Fletcher
The Mike Ross Band, Foreign Affairs
The Mighty Bosscats

and many more (always bearing in mind that the lineup is subject to change).

Early Bird Weekend Tickets (limited to 500) are already selling fast and will inevitably sell out several months before the start of the Festival.

Some 'Single Session' tickets will be available at a later date but these will be balcony only tickets, and will not include the Welcome Party, any of the After Parties or the finale of the festival on the Sunday night. So, if you want to see every minute of this impressive festival at the most cost effective price an Early Bird Weekend ticket (£114) is strongly advised.

Scarborough's TOP SECRET Blues Festival is a not-for-profit venture run by Scarborough Blues Club CIC.
