THE ANIMALS & FRIENDS
One of the biggest ever bands to descend on BMF is rhythm and blues act Animals and Friends, featuring original The Animals founding member John Steel. This is an unmissable opportunity to see them perform on the BMF stage as part of their farewell tour. Sixties legends The Animals were the second British band to top the American charts after The Beatles with their multi-million selling anthem, ‘House of the Rising Sun’.
Singer, songwriter and bandleader Elles Bailey is described as a smoky-voiced human dynamo. She has powered her way to the forefront of the British blues and roots scene through her creative energy and laser-focused determination. Her eagerly awaited third album ‘Shining in the Half Light’ recently debuted at the top of the Official Blues charts. Catch Elles at BMF on her official 2022 tour.
Suffolk singer songwriter Joe Keeley was raised on classic country music and has been captivated by alt-country Americana ever since. Inspired by the likes of Steve Earle, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, Joe teamed up with fellow musicians to form the Joe Keeley Band. His new ‘Joe Keeley Band’ album ‘Blackwood’, released in 2020, topped the UK country album charts at no.1.
