Southport Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival

Southport Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival

On Sunday 10 October 2021 we look forward to welcoming the Southport Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival to our programme here at The Atkinson.

From swing to funk, bebop to blues, Gypsy jazz to gospel, soul to rock ‘n roll, the Southport Blues, Rhythm & Rock Festival never fails to surprise and delight music lovers. It will be an incredible celebration of music with something for all ages to enjoy.

Meet our performers:

Sari Schorr

Sari first burst onto the Blues-Rock scene in 2016 with her critically acclaimed debut album, A Force of Nature, produced by iconic British Blues pioneer Mike Vernon (David Bowie, Eric Clapton, John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green).

From her humble beginnings, working the music scene in the legendary South Bronx of New York and on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, to a performance at Carnegie Hall, the operatically trained tornado stood her ground as a phenomenal Blues-Rock singer who would not be denied.

Sari’s home is her suitcase and her path has always taken her on the road less travelled. Her life is a story of never giving up, being true to yourself and pursuing your passions against all odds. It’s a story that is incredibly inspirational and a reminder why we should Never Say Never!

Dana Gillespie

Over an illustrious career, starting in the heyday of London’s swinging sixties and still going strong, the multi award winning Blues Diva has been touring the world as a true ambassador of the risqué blues.

Kyla Brox

Blues and soul become inextricably entwined in award-winning singer-songwriter, Kyla Brox, whose raw talent has seen her described as “the finest female blues singer of her generation”.

The Cinelli Brothers

Marco & Alessandro Cinelli champion a new generation of musicians sharing a love of Blues, Soul and R&B, with authentic sounds that have made blues a cornerstone of music history.

Connor Selby

With his soulful vocals and his distinctive guitar playing, Connor Selby evokes the British blues boom of the 1960’s. In July 2019, Selby was selected to appear at Wembley Stadium supporting The Who, Kaiser Chiefs, Imelda May and Eddie Vedder .

The Mojo Preachers

A five-piece, female fronted, boundary-pushing outfit, delivering hard-hitting original tunes; conjuring up a melodiously intricate, authentic yet unconventional sound!
