Issue 198 – June 2018

May 31, 2018 in Editorial

In this month’s magazine Joe Flip writes to tell us about his company making guitars from Vintage Oil Cans and he hopes to be over here next year to play you some blues. Oli Brown is back with his blues to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his debut album and Guy Bennett introduces himself.

Our cover artist, Big Boy Bloater, talks about his latest album as does Cherry Lee Mewis, back on dry land after her voyages. We catch up with Guy Tortora to find out some background and about the collaboration with Ben Tyzack.

Jonathan Townsend did his own straw poll on the ‘state of the blues’ in the UK and brings us his conclusions while Plunger takes a wry look at the scene again this month with thoughts on the Devil’s music.

We have your gig, festival and album reviews our comprehensive gig and festival guides and the IBBA Radio Guide.

Until next month, get out and see some live music and enjoy yer blues.
