The committee operate Orkney Blues as volunteers, and all funds go to providing bigger and better events - and attracting well-known and talented artists to the Orkney islands.

The committee is made up of blues enthusiasts and local artists, with support for the festival coming from local businesses in Orkney. 

OVER 10 YEARS OF BLUES

 

The blues festival scene has been around for nearly 20 years in various forms, with the current festival format celebrating it's 10th birthday in 2015. We intend to continue, and are grateful to the support given freely to the festival from the businesses and people of Orkney.
