ONE OF Tyldesley’s top music promoters has come up with the perfect event to chase away the winter blues - a two-night indoor music festival of top local bands and up-and-coming talent.

Ian Jackson, organiser of the town’s Cadence Festival, will be putting on two days of music on Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20.

The weekend begins on the Saturday at Bar-M, with a line-up of seven bands headlined by Jeremiah Ferrari, a former covers band now taking the local scene by storm with their distinctive blend of rock, reggae, ska, punk and rock steady.

The supporting bill sees many of the local circuit’s hottest prospects taking to the Bar-M stage, including Rebellious Jukebox, who recently signed to Longevity Records, The Minx and More Trees Please.

On Sunday the action switches to The Queens, with six bands performing and music from 4pm.

Danny Mahon will be headlining, fresh from spending time on the road supporting Beady Eye, with other acts performing including Tyldesley band Young Once, Sam Smith and Gaz Grady.

Ian said: “People have been stopping me in the street and in pubs ever since Cadence in the summer asking when the next one is, so I decided to organize a smaller event before I start planning Cadence 2012.”

Tickets for the Saturday are £3 in advance, available from The Queens or Bar-M, and £4 on the night, and are already selling well.
