Thousands of music lovers packed into Colne over the Bank holiday weekend for a Rhythm and Blues treat.

The festival celebrated 25 years of bringing Blues to Colne, with four days of back-to-back music, from authentic electric blues, through to rock, jazz and acoustic sets.

The International Stage hosted the likes of Eric Burdon, Lucky Peterson, Eric Bibb, Eric Sardinas, Otis Grand, Mike Sanchez, Andy Fairweather Low, The Yardbirds and Dr Feelgood.

Highlights on the British Stage included European Blues Awards nominee Kyla Brox, along with The Stumble, Slack Alice, The Welsh T Band and Midnight Ramble.

And the Acoustic Stage ones to watch included The Cats, favourites Hokum Hotshots, Chris Bevington and Brothers Groove.

Barnfield Construction sponsored roadhouses at Colne and Nelson Rugby Club, The Admiral Lord Rodney, The Crown Hotel, Colne Legion and The Green Chimney.
