Date: 22nd Jul 2017
Start Time: 1:30 pm
End Time: 10:00 pm

Solid Entertainments is delighted to announce that Harpenden Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival will be returning to Harpenden Public Halls on Saturday 22nd July 2017! 


Showcasing the quality of live music in the UK, enriched with a distinct Americana flavour; with Hitman Blues Band & The New York City Horns headlining plus five other very different, but striking bands in the line-up, this will undoubtedly be another great festival and an occasion not to miss! 

The Hitman Blues Band is getting worldwide recognition with their new release “The World Moves On” being hailed as "the best yet!".  Their previous release, “Blues Enough”, was in the running for two Grammy nominations and with a live show that engages the audience with great musicianship, great music, and a liberal dose of humour, The Hitman Blues Band will light up your audience!

 This year's full line-up comprises of:


Hitman Blues Band & The New York City Horns - with his striking charismatic personality, Blues Grammy-nominated Hitman knows how to put on an entertaining show, playing superb blues originals and covers with a hugely-talented band!

Lisa MillsMississippi native, now Alabama resident Lisa Mills could be called a blues singer, or a gospel singer, or a torch singer or an R&B singer, and each label would be accurate......the only way to get this, is to see and hear Lisa play!

Red Butler dynamic rock/blues band Red Butler is fast making a name for itself across Britain and Europe with audiences instantly tapping into the fire and passion generated by the young band from Brighton!

Matt Woosey Band – Matt is an artist who slips the creative straightjacket of the modern industry, a trailblazer with no reverse gear, a performer who drags the acoustic guitar kicking and screaming into fresh relevance!

 Jack J Hutchinson - is touring the UK with his backing band. Expect loud, electric blues that is equal parts Magic Sam and Elmore James, with a touch of Peter Green thrown in for good measure!


Split Whiskers - this energetic 5 piece from Cambridge and Leicester have their roots firmly planted in Chicago blues, crossing boundaries into rock, Americana with more than a hint of the Delta!

 With this calibre of artist stepping on stage, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a creative mix of Blues, Rock and R & B, with a sprinkling of Gospel in the mix! 


No need to worry about searching for food and drinks on the day either, there will be a range of alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, real ales available and a varied menu that should meet everyone's taste!
