New Isle of Wight music events announced

Isle of Wight holidays could be set for a boost in popularity among music lovers after a new set of events was announced as being held on the island.

Revellers may wish to head to the island in order to attend a dance music showcase being hosted in St George's Park in Newport on February 4th, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Mark Archer has been revealed to be the headline act for the Tripudio night, which is being held by Altern-8, one of the biggest names to have come out of the rave period.

The music is set to start at 21:00 GMT and last for five hours, so those who want to go along and dance may wish to ensure they book accommodation on the Isle of Wight for afterwards.

Other acts to be taking to the decks on the stage at the show include Stretch Matt D, Joz, John Anderson, Richie P and Kaf-tan, it was revealed by the organisers.

This coincides with the news a music club has been formed in Ryde on the Isle of Wight that will be putting on concerts on a monthly basis.

The Ryde Folk and Blues Club has been founded as a meeting place for players and listeners and will get underway on March 25th at the Wight Rock Bar at the Colonnade in Lind Street, Ryde, reports the County Press.

It will then be hosted at the location on the last Sunday night of every month, with acts lined up to play at the showcase including The Hillmans with Dick Taylor, the Andy Charles Blues Band and the Ric Harris Blues Band.

Others such as the Tea and Biscuit Boys and the blues solo artist Travelsick Rick will also be taking to the stage at the location in the coming months.
