CUPAR Blues and Beyond Club returns to Watts on September 2 for the first of its autumn sessions.

Announcing the club’s programme this week Charlie Milne said “they were excited to be promoting a mixture of new and well established Blues acts.”

The first session kicks off with two new acts.

Straight from busking at the Edinburgh festival will be solo blues artist Richard Blues.

Richard can regularly be seen in Covent Garden, London and each August makes his way to Edinburgh to entertain the hoards visiting the city.

“We saw Richard perform last year and were so impressed we had to book him to come to Cupar,” said Charlie.

Richard produced his first album in January 2010 and those wishing to see him in advance of his performance in Cupar can check him out on You Tube.

Following Richard will be four piece Yorkshire band Blues Positive.

The band is led by the versatile, multiple instrumentalist Professor Tim King, master of sax, blues guitar and slide guitar who between solos has time to deliver powerful vocals.

The band provides high energy up tempo Blues with music ranging from the 50s and 60s Chicago blues of Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter right up to the present day with influences from Muddy Watters Cream and Robert Cray.

Between now and December the club will also be promoting the return of the very popular Revolutionaires on September 30 and the Lyndon Anderson Band on November 4 with Scotland’s greatest blues band Blues in Trouble making a return to the town on December 2.

The club will continue its fund-raising activities for international and local charities.

Earlier in the year the club presented £200 to the Adamson Café Fund, a sum raised by club patrons .

Tickets for both September sessions are now on sale at Bairds property shop Cupar and Watts and are discounted if bought in advance.
