Local talent and international legends are set to play The Blues Kitchen's Concert Hall in Manchester this season.

In January, the 500-capacity Concert Hall situated on The Blues Kitchen’s first floor saw hip-hop royalty Jay Electronica grace the stage, as well as Nigerian-British musician Dele Sosimi bring his afrobeat orchestra to Manchester.


In February, the cream of Manchester’s soul and jazz talent – Mali Hayes, Pops of Lovescene and Bee Rosebud – will team up to present a tribute to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Erykah Badu’s timeless ‘Baduizm’.


Slum Village return to the Blues Kitchen stage for their second show following a sold out stellar show in 2021. Legendary neo-soul artist, Roy Ayers, is one not to be missed, in addition to new wave Nigerian neo-soul singer-songwriter Wayne Snow, who will be making his debut in the city. Plus, radical pop collective NiNE8 and Hacienda’s original resident, Greg Wilson, will be playing too.
