Blues fest update

THERE have been a couple of last-minute changes to the line-up for this weekend’s fifth Shetland Blues Festival.

Welsh singer Cherry Lee Mewis appears at the British Legion in Lerwick on Friday night, instead of at Norscot Angling Club, as well as playing there on Saturday night.

Donald Anderson has been added to the bill at the Mid Brae Inn on Friday.Festival organiser Jimmy Carlyle said sales for the Lerwick shows have been “pretty solid”, with the Legion now virtually sold out on Saturday night, and big turnouts are expected on the night in Whalsay, Yell and Scalloway.

The full line-up, as well as biographies of the visiting artists, is available on the festival website at
