The dream of playing an international blues festival is still within the reach of one local band who have taken part in a country-wide search for the best in new blues talent.
The Revenues, featuring two former Nelson and Colne College students, came second in a regional heat of the New Brunswick Battle of the Bands contest.
This means the band can still take a place in the London final in March if they win a public vote via the competition’s website.
Guitarist Phil Harrison who is from Barnoldswick said: “We would like to thank everyone for their support so far and to play at the festival over in Canada would be a dream come true.
“It is still within reach providing the public get behind us!”
Online voting runs until February 28th at www.tourismnewbrunswick.co.uk
The band will next play live at The Grand, Clitheroe, on February 19th with Hokie Joint.
