The Admiral 2010 Mumbles Mostly Blues & Jazz Festival presents another world-class program of music by the seaside for the May Bank Holiday Weekend, April 30th to May 3rd.

The Admiral 2010 Mumbles Mostly Blues & Jazz Festival presents another world-class program of music by the seaside for the May Bank Holiday weekend, April 30th to May 3rd.

The Year of Women in Blues & Jazz

Talented women singers and musicians have already made their mark in the festival’s remarkable five-year history. (Think Tina May and Lee Gibson, two of the finest women jazz singers in the country. Or Zoé Schwarz and The Baddest Blues Band — Ever!). And for 2010, the programme, which is once again generously sponsored by Admiral, will be led by top international female talent.

Friday night in the Festival Pavilion stars Maggie Bell and Dave Kelly & The BBQ. Yup, that’s Maggie Bell of Stone The Crows, together with Dave Kelly (last seen at the festival with the bill-topping Blues Band in 2007) and some of the finest blues, R&B and rock musicians in the land. The good times will certainly roll — this is a great band with big reputations and fabulous voices. A review of soul, blues and classics, with some thumping rock’n’roll thrown in. In support will be festival favourite the Sean Webster Band!
