SO WHY THE BLUES & WHY DEREHAM?
Blues is a broad based music genre, rooted deep in the social fabric of today's society and has given rise to some of the most popular forms of music we know today! Geographically smack in the centre of Norfolk, Dereham is often referred to as the 'Heart of Norfolk' and the Dereham Blues Festival is all set to supply the 'Beat'!
Spread across twelve venues, festival goers can enjoy free access to a wide range of some truly talented bands offering a whole mess o' blues from Mississippi swamp through to R&B, from the Chicago blues of Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters to Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan right up to the funky, verging on jazz... There really is something for everyone!
The Dereham Blues Festival is a must for all music lovers and we look forward welcoming you to the only 'Twelve Bars of Blues' in the UK!
CALLING ALL BLUES LOVERS
2015 saw the Norfolk Blues Society deliver yet an successful festival. Though perceived locally as a regional event it has become apparent that in its three short years it has reached far beyond Norfolk and has gained national status.
Currently the festival is run by just two people and with the festival becoming bigger and better each year, a proper event committee made up of volunteers is needed. Although still affiliated and sponsored by the Norfolk Blues Society, the festival has become a company in its own right and is now registered as a not-for-profit company.
We are on the lookout for people who would like to join our growing event team. If you think this might be for you and would like to volunteer your services, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
