Calling all Blackburn crew!

Haslam FlyerI am currently working on a project in collaboration with the great Dave Haslam, Blackburn is Open, and King George’s Hall which is investigating Blackburn’s musical night life, old and new.

I’m looking for volunteers who would be willing to tell me a short anecdote about their most memorable musical event in Blackburn. This can be any kind of music at any of Blackburn’s infamous venues.

The project aims to recapture the vibrancy of Blackburn’s musical heritage. Iconic performances, club nights, special records, influential musical experiences, just tales of nights out with friends are all welcome.

The recordings will be used as part of the book launch event for Dave Haslam’s new work ‘Life After Dark’, taking place at King George’s Hall, 11th Sept 2015. If you would like to get involved and tell us your story, please contact me on

Feel free to share this post to as many Blackburn night owls as possible! Cheers all.”
