Issue 175 – July 2016

July 1, 2016 in Editorial


With the Festival season now in full swing, in this month's edition we find out from Bob Salmons about the background to the Ealing Blues Festival. We also talk to Beki Brindle and Chris Antonik who will both be over here and touring the UK. Robin Bibi is on the road in support of his latest studio album, so we catch up with him and Adam Norsworthy explains about being a versatile musician these days.
Now the touchy subject of tribute bands – we get an explanation about Sinnerboy from Barry Barnes and we nail down Laurence Jones and Mike Vernon to talk about life on the road and the latest album. Is Toby Lee the youngest blues artist to appear in the pages of Blues In Britain? We get the details and introduce you to Dr Blue. As usual we have your gigs, festivals and new release reviews and you can see what’s happening in your area with the Gig and Festival Guides,  If you’re staying in and listening to the radio for your blues then check out the Radio Guide on Page 42. Enjoy the read and go see some live music. Until next month – Enjoy Yer Blues!
