Still going strong more than half a century down the line, few bands boast the blues pedigree of the legendary Savoy Brown.

And in 2019 the Londoners – replete with founder member Kim Simmonds – will co-headline HRH Blues V!

Formed in 1965, Simmonds joined forces with Bryce Portius, Trevor Jeavons, Ray Chappell, Leo Manning and harmonica player John O’Leary to create a blues rock collective that would go on to taste success on both sides of the Atlantic.

And on Sunday April 14 Savoy Brown will star in the Steel City – joining Saturday night headliner Aynsley Lister for a weekend of red hot blues.

Sheffield’s award-winning O2 Academy will host the fifth edition of the 48-hour shindig.

And the city centre venue will also welcome the following big name acts: Climax Blues Band, Chantel McGregor, The Quireboys (blues set), Pontus Snibb’s Wreck Of Blues, Billy Walton Band,  Erja Lyytinen, John Verity Band,  Gerry Jablonski & The Electric Band, Sam Kelly’s Station House,  Xander and the Peace Pirates, Babajack, Gabriella Jones, Henry’s Funeral Shoe,  Clare Free, Thr3e,  Jack J Hutchinson Band, Hot Tramp, Southbound, Matt Pearce and the Mutiny, Blind Saints.

HRH Blues V offers fans great music with hotels and breakfast included – as well as entrance across the weekend.
