Welcome to Carlisle Rock and Blues Festival

Eight years is a long time but to take Carlisle Blues Festival from scratch to one of the top blues events in the UK, without funding or sponsorship, in that time frame is still something of an achievement and one of which I'm immensely proud.

However, 2014 was a difficult year; it took its toll, so much so that I don't have the energy and wherewithal to organise the event in 2015. It is my intention to get my health and wellbeing back on track and use the time to rediscover my mojo.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped me in whatever way over the past eight years and wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2015.

The charity collection at November's festival and my Great North Run raised £441.40 for Hospice At Home who helped care for my Father throughout his illness. Thank you to everyone who made a contribution
