Can you help Brian Stringer find bands for this year’s canal festival?


The 2014 Canalised festival was a real success, and I’m sure 2015’s will be even better!

Here’s an important and fun request from Brian Stringer – The Clayhanger Kid himself – who is again organising the Brownhills Canalside Festival for 2015, this year taking place on Sunday 28th June.

Brian needs some bands for the event, and is drawing a bit of a blank. He wrote to me in the hope we can get his request out to as wide an audience as possible.

Hi Bob.

Perhaps you wouldn’t mind putting your blog to the task of helping me out.

I’m looking for a couple of musical acts for the Canal Festival on the 28th June 2015. I’ve been to Forest Art.School but drew a blank and thought if maybe we put an appeal out on the blog we may attract a few. Ideally I’d like folk, R&B, Country western or Brass, and would be doubly delighted if a Skiffle group showed, although most have never heard of one (my age I guess!)

We are willing to pay the going rate so if anyone wants a chance to show us their talent please get in touch. Ring 01543 361144 or me direct at 01543 821539.


If any of you are in a band, or know of one, please do shout up. One of the things that made so much difference to last year’s festival was the great music. Let’s see if we can replicate that for this year.

Call Brian on either of the numbers above, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
