Blues and jazz giant to play the Jinney Ring

A MIX of great music, food and fun is on the bill at the Jinney Ring Blues Festival, which is back for its seventh year this weekend.

The event will run from Friday to Sunday (May 29 to 31) and will feature six live bands, including the renowned Birmingham based Steve Ajao, one of the hottest blues guitarist in the UK, and his Blues Giants.

David Migden, one of the best male vocalists of contemporary blues, and The Twisted Roots, who only rarely perform in Worcestershire, are also among those in the line-up for the festival. In 2014 the band represented the UK in the European Blues Challenge, and their unique blend of blues, rock and American roots music will be unmissable for any music fan.

As well as the magnificent music, there will also be a beer festival throughout the weekend, which opens with a ‘ten ales’ night on the Friday boasting a range of local beers, ciders and perrys.

Delicious food and refreshments will also be on offer and there will be camping available on Friday and Saturday night. There will be plenty of cover in case of rain and, organisers say, the resident ducks are good company too.

Jinney Ring owner Amanda Sunter said. “We are tremendously excited for this year’s Blues Festival.

“With performances from nationally acclaimed musicians, glorious surroundings and some excellent locally produced ales, it will certainly be a weekend to remember.”

Advance tickets for Saturday are £16 (£20 on the gate), £7 for under 14s and under fives go free.

Camping is £7 per person per night or £12.50 per person for two.

That includes a £2 breakfast voucher for the Jinney Ring Farmhouse Restaurant.

Tickets can be booked online at or by calling 01527 821272.
