New Open-Air Blues Busk Added to the Dereham Blues Festival

The Dereham Blues Festival is back, bigger and better than ever! In addition to over 120 free gigs during the 5 days of the festival, we are thrilled to announce a brand new open-air event for 2022. The NBS ‘Blues Busk’ will feature a non-stop afternoon of seasoned buskers and up and coming, young, local, blues talent in the newly opened Ellenor Fenn Garden on Saturday afternoon 9th July.

Eight solo artists, duos and bands will each be playing 20-30 unplugged minute sets in the town centre pocket park from 1pm, in an event sponsored by the Norfolk Blues Society.

So whether you're in town shopping, or on the way from one free gig to another, stop off to hear some great music from some seasoned musicians and up & coming local talent, throw a quid in the collection buckets (10% of all money collected goes to the upkeep of the garden) and enjoy some of the Dereham Blues Festival atmosphere.
