The Edinburgh Blues Club is a Social Enterprise established in January 2014 to harness popular support for regular blues events in Edinburgh. The club provide a monthly blues event, featuring touring blues acts from the UK and beyond, with support from the finest local blues artists. We have a choice of venues and a core membership who pay a regular payment for entry to all our events at a discount to individual ticket sales. The Edinburgh Blues Club features a diverse range of styles with a strong blues influence with varying elements of rock, soul, jazz, funk, country and folk. Every show is different! The club is now the biggest blues club in Scotland and the only one to host international acts.
While all our shows are on public sale through various outlets, membership of the Edinburgh Blues Club is available for £10 per month. This regular payment covers entry to all our hosted shows, providing a considerable saving for regular attendees. Members have an influence on future artists’ bookings and benefit from price reductions for additional tickets to both our shows and other events in the city on sale at all our shows.
