What’s New in Issue 102

June 1, 2010 in Editorial

Issue 102A Blues In Britain reader told me that Larry Miller, our featured artist this month, is very entertaining live. When I heard he was bringing out a new album, called Unfinished Business, it was a good opportunity to invite him in to Blues In Britain for interview. He turns out to be a very determined man as you will learn.

Popa Chubby is coming back for more dates in June. The last time he came to London, I met up with him in his Bayswater hotel and he told me about his latest album The Fight Is On. He will be playing at Blues On The Farm this month.

Solo artist Patrick Sweany is also playing at Blues On The Farm. We have yet to meet, so Patrick sent Blues In Britain an e-letter to explain what we will get when we see him. Blues On The Farm sounds like something to look forward to, so many great musicians are playing there.

Dr Blue & The Prescription is a London based band. The band plays at Ain’t Nothing But and Charlotte Street Blues and is appearing at The Kerry Blues Festival in Ireland this month. Mike Mckeon, alias Dr Blue, sent in his e-letter to fill us in on the band.

Also in this issue have festival reports from Swanage and from the New Orleans Jazz Fest plus regular reviews of gigs and CDs. The summer brings the rainy season but we are not to be deterred from going to as many outdoor events as possible. Take a brolly and take notes and photographs so you can send in a review. Thank you every one who contributes! Please keep them coming in, I can’t do it by myself.
