This year the line up consisted of a mixture of traditional acoustic delta blues performed by masters of the genre and the future of the blues played by younger generation.

The MC for the weekend was Chris Powers who seemed to have a suit for all occasions.

Chris Powers and his wardrobe! - MC for the weekend

This was a wonderful festival with Maryport seeming to go from strength to strength. With a line up full of quality artists Maryport must now be the premier blues festival in the UK. Congratulations Maryport for such an enjoyable festival. I look forward to next year’s line up.
