BLUES FESTIVAL OPENING CONCERT
Wednesday, 6 July 2022
The Dereham Blues Festival is back featuring not one, but two fantastic UK top blues acts for the opening concert. The two acts the blues duo When Rivers Meet plus their backing band and Kyla Brox and her band are real rising stars at the top of their game on the UK blues scene with many recent awards under their belts.
When Rivers Meet are husband and wife duo Grace and Aaron Bond and hail from Essex, although they met in Downham Market in Norfolk. So a real regional talent gaining a breath-taking reputation across the UK blues scene. Last year, they won four UK Blues Awards, for: Emerging Blues Artist of the Year; Blues Band of the Year; Blues Album of the Year; and Most Inspirational Online Performance of the Year.
Kyla Brox’ hails from Manchester and her raw talent has seen her described as “the finest female blues singer of her generation”. She was the winner of the UK Blues Challenge 2018 and the European Blues Challenge 2019, and voted Best Female Vocalist in the 2019 European Blues Awards. Kyla Brox is widely regarded as one of the very best soul-blues singers the British Isles has ever produced.
