.       Danny Bryant - recently called a “National Blues Treasure“, a title that he has worked tirelessly and passionately to earn...what else is there to be said!

·       Laurence Jones –  at just 22 years old, the young gunslinger of blues-rock is already making a big name for himself and his natural gift is something very special!

·       Matt Woosey - a refreshing musical song writing and playing style that combines acoustic blues, folk and rock conveyed with an accomplished vocal delivery!     

With this calibre of artist stepping on stage, festival goers can expect to see top class live performances and hear a range of incredible sounds with sets that incorporate a mix of Blues, Rock and R & B!

Jump on board the Red Cross Musical express on Saturday 16 May 2015 for a fun-filled day out for all the family.  Don’t miss the opportunity to be serenaded by the Glastonbury Male Voice Choir and the King’s College (Taunton) Jazz Band whilst tucking into a tasty cream tea.  Enjoy all this as you rush through the beautiful Somerset countryside, from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead, on a classic steam train.

This is just one of the many events being held this season to help raise vital funds for the British Red Cross. As part of a global humanitarian network, the British Red Cross helps those in the UK and abroad prepare, respond and recover from crisis. In the UK, the provision of a Red Cross wheelchair or support from one of our independent living volunteers can give someone that fundamental support they need to regain their independence and rebuild their lives.

 By coming along to one of our events you are making it possible for the Red Cross to carrying on supporting those crises. Regardless of whom they are or where they are, with your support, we can support them.
