The best of blues rock is returning to Warrington next month in the form of Summertime Festival, headlined by Joanne Shaw Taylor.

Joanne is a blues rock sensation who is taking the world by storm and will be top of the bill at the event on Saturday 15 July, presented by The Gig Cartel.

With tracks performed on BBC2’s Later with Jools Holland, her latest album Wild entered the UK album charts at number 20 and was welcomed with rave reviews by the press and her peers; American blues rock legend Joe Bonamassa recently described Joanne as a “superstar in waiting”.

Also on the bill will be Stevie Nimmo, Bad Touch, and Xander and the Peace Pirates.

Stevie Nimmo has been successfully recording and touring for the last two decades. Born and raised in Glasgow, there was always music around as Stevie grew up.

Maverick Magazine said: “Stevie’s voice is at times gritty, other times emotional, but all times perfection.”

Bad Touch are a new young rock band from Norfolk, fresh from a Planet Rock radio station Roadstars tour which earned them recognition as ones to watch for 2017.

And Xander and the Peace Pirates are Liverpool boys who will open the show with a combination of soul, blues and rock; their pervasive blend of inspired song-writing and memorable performances has already seen them enrapture audiences from around the world.
