Blues legend Victor Brox returns for gig in Derbyshire

Folk and blues fans are in for a month of concerts in a Hope Valley village with any profits going to the Edale Mountain Rescue.

Victor Brox returns to play at The Tearoom, Old Hall Hotel, Hope, on November 1, following a sell-out gig in May.

Superstars Jimi Hendrix and Tina Turner rated Victor as their favourite white blues singer. Now in his 70s, Victor’s performance is as powerful as ever.

Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £9 in advance and £10 on door.

Other artists lined up include Keith Christmas, who played guitar on three of David Bowie’s albums including Space Oddity. He has made 12 albums since 1969 and another is on its way.

Keith will be performing in The Tearoom on Sunday, November 15. Tickets £9 in advance and £10 on door.

Acoustic rock band Treebeard round off the month’s concerts, performing on Sunday, November 29.

Hailing from Sheffield, the group features former Haze/World Turtle compatriots Chris and Paul McMahon with Danny McMahon and Ceri and Catrin Ashton.

Their repertoire includes original songs about ghostly black dogs and satanic barristers and traditional English and Irish songs and tunes.

Paul Pearson and Rob Lowdon will be support at Treebeard’s concert. Tickets £5 in advance, £6 on door.
