ARTIST Glynis Dray is helping to draw visitors to a free festival.

The Malvern-based illustrator has been a regular visitor to the Upton Blues Festival and drawing inspiration from sights, sounds and people at the 2013 edition, Ms Dray has produced a series of drawings capturing the spirit of the festival.

These images are being used for all the 2014 promotional material and the logo for the official festival t-shirt, with the event running from Friday to Sunday, July 18-20.

It boasts more than 100 scheduled performances over the three days, with artists playing on three official festival stages, 10 pub stages and various street venues, with Dutch band Bradleys Circus headlining the event.

Providing something for everyone, the music ranges from rhythm and blues to bluegrass, country blues to New Orleans, acoustic to soul and gospel.

In addition to the music, the festival also runs a series of musical workshops offering players of all abilities the chance to work with professional musicians to develop their skills.
