Fine City Blues has been bringing the best of the blues into Norwich and Norfolk from all over the world since 2014.
It all kicked off with the Fine City Blues Explosion at the award-winning venue Norwich Arts Centre…
Morphing naturally into the Fine City Blues Festival, it continues to run each year in October. The focus has always been on real blues featuring great blues artists and bands from the USA, the UK and beyond.
The Fine City Blues Festival 2019 features the Kyla Brox Band – winners of the UK Blues Awards 2019 and the European Blues Challenge 2019 – at Norwich Arts Centre on Friday 25th October. Topping the bill on the Acoustic Stage at the Louis Marchesi are Doug MacLeod (USA) “Master of original acoustic blues” on Saturday 19th October, and Sean Taylor (UK) “Articulate. Compelling. Brilliant.” on Sunday 20th October.
In addition to the Fine City Blues Festival, FCB launched its first Fine City Blues Summer In The City in 2019 at the Louis Marchesi – the new home of the Fine City Blues Club – in August. Having established the club four and a half magical years ago at The Murderers, The Louis Marchesi now provides FCB with the flexibility to promote special ticketed concerts as well as free blues nights.
FCB is also busy planning more special blues events into 2020 and beyond.
Norwich is now well and truly on the map as a city with a growing international reputation for delivering great blues in great venues: venues that provide the right kind of atmosphere and intimacy that showcase blues at its very best!
