Joanne Shaw Taylor Added as Co-Headliner to HRH Blues 7


HRH Blues 7 featuring HRH CROWS 3 will take place on 12th – 15th November 2020, creating a 3 day, 3 arena affair with over 40 bands from around the planet!

For the last 6 years HRH Blues has been selling out faster and faster; 11 months prior to be exact. People have been making the pilgrimage from all over the world, making it one hell of a blues-rock experience. HRH Blues 6 in April 2020 has been sold out for some time and HRH CROWS our new Country Rock, Outlaw, Western, Southern Rock gathering has been rising at a similar speed even though its only in its second cycle.

We are big believers in fate and with our recent move to our new 5 Star Camp HRH (featuring top quality accommodation, multiple eateries, 3 arenas and incredible facilities) in Great Yarmouth we have unanimously decided that this is an opportunity not to be missed and have gone all out to create the biggest blues rock residential festival on the planet: 5-star style which will also feature HRH C.R.O.W.S. in this new 3 day, 3 Arena epic adventure.

We are absolutely stoked to be able to announce that award-winning Joanne Shaw Taylor is one of our co-headliners for HRH Blues 7 Ft. CROWS 3 in Great Yarmouth.  The blues-rock singer-songwriter rose quickly to the top of the blues scene when both of the first two albums hit the top ten in the US Billboard Blues Album chart.  In 2018 Joanne signed for Sony Music, and this year released her sixth album “Reckless Heart” to critical acclaim.

Friday nights headliner is none other than Roger Chapman & The Short List.  Roger rose to fame with Family in the late ’60s, before Streetwalkers brought further success during the ’70s.  The ’80s saw him team up with Mike Oldfield, achieving a hit with “Shadow on the Wall”.  Roger continues to perform to this day well into his seventies and we are honoured to have him appear for us at HRH Blues 7.  This really is a rare chance to see a unique blues set from a true legend of British rock’n’roll, an artist that continues to sell out theatres to this day.

We are delighted to announce that Molly Hatchet, with new frontman Jimmy Elkins, join us at Great Yarmouth as Thursday night headliners as part of their 45th Anniversary World Tour. The 6-piece from Jacksonville Florida, known best for their hit 1979 hit “Flirtin’ With Disaster”, bring their unique and heavy southern hard rock to HRH Blues 7 ft CROWS 3.

Thursday’s line-up is brimful of talent – which will be highlighted when award-winning singer-songwriter Jo Harman hits the stage.   The rising star of British blues has played with the likes of Patti Smith and Joan Baez, and is a true international artist with a growing reputation. Take a listen to Jo’s collaboration with Mike Harris below:

Our Saturday headliner is a project spearheaded by ex Bad Company and Humble Pie guitarist Dave “Bucket” Colwell, Buckets Rebel Heart,  also featuring bassist Dave Boyce once of The Quireboys and drummer Paul Edwards formerly of 720 and New Torpedoes.  Their debut album, 2018’s “20 Good Summers”, featured vocals from amongst others Mollie Marriott and Rick Richards of Georgia Satellites fame.

Mike Farris and his Band also join us for Saturday night in Great Yarmouth.  Perhaps best known for his band Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies, Grammy award winner Mike brings an incredible pedigree to HRH Blues 7 with his unique take on gospel and blues. His latest album release, 2018’s Silver and Stone featured many guest artists including brit Joe Bonamassa.

Other mind-blowing acts include Stan Webb’s Chicken Shack, Corky Laing Plays Mountain, Henrik Freischlader, Creedence Clearwater Review, Paul Lamb and The King Snakes, Big Daddy Wilson, Bernard Allison, Ken Pustelnik’s Groundhogs, The Brew, Fargo Railroad Co, Wille and the Bandits, Amy Montgomery, Pig Iron, Bad Touch, Eliana Cargnelutti, Felix Rabin, Dusk Brothers, Clare Free, Tom Killner Band, Big River, Bootyard Bandits, Revival Black, Piston, Mojo Preachers, Jimmy Regal & The Royals, Lee Ainley’s Blues Storm, Deep Blue Sea, Southbound, The Nile Deltas, These Wicked Rivers, Crooked Shapes, The Black Hands, Colina Pearl, Sidewinder, Dig Lazarus and The Wicked Jackals.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
