Broomfield Blues

broomfield blues 2017

Palmers Green plays host to one of London's top Blues clubs - St Harmonica's - hosted at the St Monica's Parish Centre. Together with the Vintage Blues Music Association, our sponsor Winkworth, and a host of supporting friends, the Friends of Broomfield Park are delighted to bring you another August full of the best in Blues.

Broomfield Blues is our annual celebration and showcase of what can be found every Friday evening at St Harmonica's. Each Sunday afternoon during August come along, eat, drink and listen to three hours of some of the best Blues music London has to offer.

If you like what you hear all we ask is that you acknowledge that by contributing to the collection "hat", either when it does the rounds, or via the Control site

Local charities will be present offering teas & coffee and we have a very fine ice cream stall and bar.

Each afternoon is preceded by a one hour "open mic'' session at 1:30 offering a stage to up and coming as well as experienced performers. Do support them.

Open mic registration requests via: www.thevintage.org.uk


Week 3 - Sunday 20th August 2017: Festival Blues

Two of the UK's finest festival acts, perfect for an August afternoon.

1:30 - 2.30 OPEN MIC SESSIONS

2:30 - 3:30 THE HILL STREET BLUES BAND

The Hill Street Blues Band are St Alban's finest with the musicianship, repertoire and banter to grace any festival stage. Nick Holland plays a mean harmonica while Paul Hilder is an outstanding guitarist, vocalist and front man.

The perfect music for a relaxed, chilled summer's afternoon in the park.

3:45 - 5:30 BORN HEALER

Born Healer are one of those bands who have played almost every blues festival in the UK. With a terrific set list of original and cover material they are fronted by Helen Turner, one of the finest vocalists on the Blues scene.

(All timings approximate.)


Week 4 - Sunday 27th August 2017: Blues Old & New

1:30 -2:30 OPEN MIC SESSIONS

2:30 - 3:00 THE LOW DOWN DOGS & FRIENDS

The Low Down Dogs provide the 'Old' with acoustic and electric blues that meanders from the Mississippi Delta via Memphis and Chicago to the New River Delta!

Mad Dog Dave Barnes possesses the best Blues voice in the business with a band to match comprising Vintage players John Crowther, Dave Thomas and Pete Abernethy on drums. They'll be joined by a number of friends from St Harmonica's Blues Club and beyond including Professor Redhair so anything could happen, and probably will

A flavour of Friday evenings from one of London's top Blues Clubs.

3:00 - 5:30 THE BLUES CHAPTER

The Blues Chapter are possibly the finest young (under 40) blues band around. A veritable explosion of talent they know how to tear up a stage better than some of those gnarled veterans of the scene.

They provide the 'New' with a set containing original material as well as some searing Texas Blues reminiscent of SRV at his best.

(All timings approximate.}
