A BICESTER musician will be up against the best of unsigned British blues talent in a major international festival next year.

Clare Free, from Glory Farm, has entered the first stage of the New Brunswick Battle of the Blues.

The married mum-of-two will face other blues artists in the south east heats in January, and the overall competition winner will perform at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in Fredricton, Canada, next September.

She said: “I would be thrilled if I got through to the heat but to win and play in Canada, at a major international festival, is a dream for me.”
