Music legend Roy Wood has officially launched the 2017 Lichfield Blues and Jazz Festival.

Taking place at venues across the city, the event will run from June 2 to 4.

Among the acts due to perform are the Climax Blues Band, Sticky Wicket, Fred ‘T’ Baker, Masai Blues, the Lichfield Jazz All Stars and the Remi Harris Trio.

The ELO and Wizzard star said he was keen to lend his support to the event.

“It is great that festivals like this one continue to help and develop local talent as well as giving local audiences the chance to see performers from the national circuit on their doorstep,” he said.

“As musicians we never take our audiences for granted, and we hope that you enjoy the festival, whether it is for one gig, or a workshop, or for the whole weekend, and if you want, bring a friend, because good music is always better when it is shared.”
