In something of a coup for Matlock the rapidly rising star of the British blues scene Elles Bailey is going to be performing at The Tipsy Toad, formerly Bar None, in Bakewell Road, in January.
She has added the town to her tour as she is a family friend of Lyn Mason, the chair of the Darley Dale in Bloom committee.
The concert on January 19 will help raise funds for the gold award-winning floral displays in 2017.
Bristol based Elles, dubbed a Blues Princess,is a captivating, hard-working songstress who mixes the soul of the blues and blends of country with a contemporary edge. Her music features meaningful and personal lyrics, big anthemic choruses and smooth blends of pop sensibilities.
She and her band are currently scoring rave reviews from Bristol to Berlin, with energy packed hi-octane performances and her trademark gravelly voice providing the lead.
