Information For Acts


Being handily placed 200 miles north of London and 200 miles south of Edinburgh/Glasgow with Birmingham and Newcastle in between, plus a Premier Inn virtually on the doorstep, many acts find a stop-off at Keighley Blues Live fits conveniently into their schedule.

The Club is always on the look out for suitable artists, both as headliners and support acts. If you would like to perform at the club and for details of where to send promo CDs and other material please email John at PLEASE NOTE: It is not always possible to reply to everyone due to the huge number of enquiries we receive, so if you don’t receive a reply we don’t mean to be rude!
