Fleetwood FaB Weekend 2018

3 days of community based quality live music by the people for the people… In 2015 Fleetwood Folk and Blues held their first event. It was an intimate event bringing quality live Folk, Blues and Acoustic Music and Dance into 4 venues across Fleetwood. By 2017, the third FaB event boasted 8 venues with the return of the Singarounds, Craft Cafe and Sessions Venue. 2018 intends to be better however we have no illusions of expanding upon the 8 venues we have. The passion and enthusiasm continues with the community and local businesses including pubs, tourist attractions and hotels getting involved. Fleetwood FaB has doubled in size since it's creation in 2015 and continues to go from strength to strength, boasting the best Artistes on the scene from new emerging acts to established folk familiars. Fleetwood has always been a musical town with tales of the sea right through to still having many live bands performing regularly. For 42 years Fleetwood was the home of Fylde Folk Festival until Alan Bell retired in 2014. A wonderful and dedicated team continue the tradition with a difference, to encourage a younger audience, and nurture a cross-generational love and appreciation of all styles of Folk and Blues.
