The headline act for Cleethorpes' second annual Blues Festival has been revealed.

Early-bird tickets are already on sale for the event at Pleasure Island on Sunday, June 24, 2012.

It may still be 2011, but already organisers Solid Entertainments, based in Wellowgate, Grimsby, are looking ahead to next summer.

They have announced that Robin Trower will take the headline spot.

He is one of the most acclaimed of British rock music's elder statesmen.

Robin has, over the 40-plus years since his departure from Procol Harum, assembled an incredible body of work, from his commercial high of the Bridge Of Sighs album in 1974, through to the  new album, The Playful Heart.

His music has never tried  to make concessions to commercial demands and his improvisational skills have consistently reset the bar in terms of blues-soaked inspiration and intensity.

Never abashed about crediting the late Jimi Hendrix as one of his main influences, Trower remains one of the most talented musicians  the UK has ever produced.

The blues festival will be held over two stages and will run from 3pm to 11pm.

There will be at least 13 acts performing, including Clare Free, who is the first act to be announced for the Blues Café stage.

Described as one of the fastest-rising stars on the UK blues scene, Clare is redefining the blues for the modern world.

Her roots lie in the blues, but her influences go way beyond the genre, making her one of the most exciting new artists writing and performing in the blues world today.

A passionate, award-nominated, songwriter and a fabulous guitar player, Clare is  fiery, exciting and heartfelt in performance.

Early-bird tickets, priced £21, are available from Solid Entertainments in Wellowgate.
