A busy few days beckon at Harpenden Public Halls with a visit from a leading blues musician, a highly-rated comedian and a tribute band.

First up at 7.30pm next Thursday, February 25, is Danny Bryant who has been riding high on the European blues scene for over a decade but is still only 35.

He has played over 2,000 club and festival shows and has been dubbed a National Blues Treasure by a magazine.

Supporting Danny is Red Butler, a band making a return trip to Harpenden who have been producing light-hearted and melodic composition culminating in the release of debut album Freedom Bound in summer 2014.

Tickets are £13, available from the box office on 01582 767525 or go to the website.

New York comic Lewis Schaffer brings his free-wheeling act to the Public Halls at 8pm the following night, Friday, February 26.
