Blues band set for Globe gig

Three-time British Blues Award nominee Alex McKown’s career comes full circle when he returns to the High Peak town which gave him his big break.

The Moon and Sixpence was the venue for a debut gig by The Alex McKown Band in 2008.

Five years on, and Alex and his blues band are back in Glossop for a live performance at The Globe, High Street West, on Saturday August 24, at 8pm.

Headliners in their own right, the band are regulars on the festival circuit and have graced the stage at top events including The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival in Colne, Newark Blues Festival and Ramsbottom Blues Festival.

Tickets for The Alex McKown Band, priced £6.60 (including booking fee), are available online from 18+ only.
