The 2007 Festival is Underway . . . .
2007 Festival proceedings started in fine style with an
enthralling presentation 'Railroads in the early Blues' by
Max Haymes followed by a warm up jam.
Online Ticket Sales are now closed. Tickets for the Main Stage
and the Douglas bus are available from Peter Norris
Music at £17.50 & £2.50 respectively. Tickets will
also be available on the door at £20.00 for the gig and £5

Doors open at
7.15 on Friday and Saturday nights at the Pavilion and the
first acts will start at 7.45. The room will be set out with
twelve rows of seats at the front and plenty of room for
standing and dancing behind that. If you need a seat our
advice would be to get there early! The bus to Douglas will leave from the Total filling
station on New road at 00:15 after the Friday and Saturday
Don’t forget the
free main stage on Saturday afternoon with local Blues
musicians – we do hope that you will all come and bring your
family. Monica George will provide properly supervised
children’s entertainment in a marquee on the bowling green
just below the Pavilion.

Thanks again to

have advertised in our programme, which we hope will be on
sale before the Festival – look out in Peter Norris Music,
Ramsey Music Supplies and Fish ‘o’ Man in Laxey.
Finally our best
wishes go to Derrin Nauendorf, and his family, who had to
cancel many gigs and fly back to Australia after his father
died suddenly in March. We are delighted that Derrin is will
in time for his gig on the main stage on Friday night.
See you all at the
