Issue 199 – July 2018

July 1, 2018 in Editorial, Uncategorized

It’s not often we get to put a mega rock star on our front cover but Billy Gibbons is touring with Supersonic Blues Machine and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. We also chat with drummer Kenny Aronoff. Elsewhere in this month’s edition two bands introduce themselves: Mojo Hand and Thirty Two/20. We catch up with Giles Robson and Keith Thompson, now in his 40th year in the business. Brent Hutchinson is a relative newcomer and we get the lowdown on his activities. Plunger takes its usual wry shot at the scene and this month they have our reviewers in their sights 

The summer festival season is now in full swing and you can party almost non-stop through till September. All the details are in our comprehensive Gig & Festival guides starting on Page 34. Clearly Belfast and Edinburgh are putting other UK cities to shame with the size and breadth of their festivals. As always we bring you gig and album reviews along with the Radio Guide.

Our news section has a number of invitations for you to make contact and get involved. If you don’t have an address you can always use the editor@bluesinbritain.org email address. Use that one too if you like to comment about anything you read in the magazine.

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