Running to catch up... 0

So, what's been happening?  Just back from two full days at Upton upon Severn Blues Festival, running an all-day open mic, Saturday night gig and Sunday sessions at The White Lion with my band Chickenbone Blues.  As usual, the John, the gaffer at The White Lion makes a real effort for the weekend...a great range of real ales and ciders (which inevitably ran out!), loads of great hot food on offer all day....and a super groovy laid-back vibe.

 

Next up is Birmingham Jazz Festival Fringe this coming weekend at The King's Head Bearwood, again with the band and some old friends...it will be real pleasure to be sharing the stage with them...acoustic young guns Mellow Peaches,my old buddies  Dermot "Dog" Walker's Trio, and the wonderful Kirsty and Kenny, acoustic blues duo with some super authentic old timey blues and gospel..blues shouting and slide playing at it's very best.

A quick holiday break, and then back for Bushwacked Bike Festival, Barrelhouse Blues in Elstead (with a cigarbox guitar making workshop), Mosely Folk Festival...that's the end of August taken care of, then away to Belgium in September for Aaarschot Rockt and the 1st Dutch Cigar Box Guitar Festival in Ommen.
