Voting closes tonight in the UK Blues Awards, with East Anglian outfit When Rivers Meet in the running to build on their tremendous success of last year.
The husband-and-wife duo of Aaron and Grace Bond have been nominated in three categories – Blues Vocalist of the Year, Blues Band of the Year and Blues Album of the Year.
It comes after their remarkable achievement in 2021, when they were the first act to win four gongs at the awards.
When Rivers Meet’s rescheduled headline UK tour to promote their Saving Grace album gets under way soon. Following a sold-out warm-up show in Bury St Edmunds next month, east of England dates will include Colchester Arts Centre on Friday, April 29, and The Waterfront in Norwich on Saturday, May 14.
It’ll follow their tour at the back end of last year supporting King King, who are also up for Blues Band of the Year at the UK Blues Awards.
To vote in the awards, click here before 11.45pm on Tuesday, February 15. Votes need to be cast in at least five of the 10 categories in order for them to be counted.
