The finishing touches are being sorted ready for the second Blues At Broom Festival which takes place at Winderton, six miles from Shipston-on- Stour on Saturday.
Held in a field on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border in a stunning position near Compton Wynyates, this festival is renowned for its friendly nature and has a distinctly New Orleans Mardi Gras feel this year.
Headline act Chris Hall’s Louisiana Swamp Band have a reputation as one of the most authentic Cajun and Zydeco acts around, and conjure up the atmosphere of the swamps and bayous. Other acts on the bill are Rosco Levee and The Southern Slide, Stomp & Holler, The Swamp Band, Hot Wired, and Aaron Keylock.
There is a huge open- sided marquee, so if it’s wet there’s plenty of cover. The food and drink on offer will reflect the theme.
The music starts at 2pm. The festival is a joint collaboration between Oliver Carpenter (Upton Blues Festival /Blues At The Fold) and Tim Porter (Porterhouse Blues)
