Blues Week 2021 Date Change
Dear Blues Week Enthusiasts, I spoke to the conference manager at Hartpury College and we agreed to a date change for Blues Week 2021. The new dates are from Sunday 1st to Friday 6th August. YES, Blues Week 2021 will include Friday night accommodation and we check out of our rooms at 10 o’clock Saturday morning (7th August).
Also, we are introducing a new element to precede the week by hosting a Blues Dance Weekend at Hartpury College starting on Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August. The weekend classes will be lead by Daire Mac & Leigh Anderson.
I first met Daire when I was touring in Valencia, Spain. Daire taught a class on Piedmont Blues Dancing and his students came to my gig. It was the first time I saw people (soberly) dance to my music (in time) and I was very impressed. Since then, I worked with him and Leigh at a weekend event in Glasgow last year. They are great teachers and a perfect addition to help us to celebrate our Blues Week 20th Anniversary.
I’ll publish more details later, but for the moment, here is an introduction to Daire and Leigh dancing on a rooftop in Edinburgh. Click on this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GabrlDCR4ZM&fbclid=IwAR2kffJ83kdJfhDiV0G6MZXCdp09ql0zzalNKIzbIThpiZQKobRUaGWIfDw
