Battle of the Blues

The bands going forward for each regional heat of the UK’s ‘New Brunswick Battle of the Blues’ have now been announced and the organisers are now turning their attention to ensuring each event is a huge success. The response has been overwhelming and the quality extremely high so we can promise a great night out at each of the heats for music lovers. Heats are being held in the second half of January in Southampton, Billericay, Beeston (Notts), Chorley (Lancs) and Glasgow.
Now although there aren't any local heats there are local bands involved.
At Glasgow we have The Bushwackers from Chester-le-Street and at Burnley, Lee Bates and Billy Newton from Gateshead and Chris James from Carlise.
So let's hear it for the boys and hope they reach the final in Canada.
