Issue 186 – June 2017

May 29, 2017 in Editorial, Uncategorized

The festival season is now coming into full bloom. It’s nice to see some new names and you can find the UK’s most comprehensive Blues Festival listings starting on Page 39. Our Club this month is the Hope Tavern pub. We thought we’d interview three Chrises for this edition. Chris Antonik is from Canada, has a new album and will be visiting the UK for a tour next April. Chis Corcoran’s new album is almost with us and Chris Bevington has a new band and is planning a major tour shortly, in the meantime you can see him at festivals this summer with his Organisation. Our cover artist Russell ‘Hitman’ Alexander will be touring this month and next, so we had a chat to find out more about him and touring the UK for Americans. Jon Taylor has a new outfit simply called JT4tet, he introduces himself and them on Page 44. Naturally we’ve got your reviews of gigs and three festivals that you’ve been to recently as well as a batch of new releases on CD. For those listening at home or on the move, check out the Radio Guide starting on Page 42 which contains a list of IBBA members Blues Radio shows. Enjoy the read and get out and see some live music, until next month – Enjoy Yer Blues!
