On this week’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 I look forward to the Scarborough Top Secret Blues Festival which takes place over the weekend 20th to 22nd March with tracks from some of the artists appearing.

There are tracks from Jon Amor Blues Group, La Vendore Rogue, Matt Woosey, Guy Tortora, Devenport, Ian Siegal, David Migden & the Twisted Roots, Lucy Zirins, Goldie Reed, Jo Harman, Kyla Brox Band and Joel Fisk & the Break Down.

In a crowded gig guide I have tracks from Matt Schofield, Todd Sharpville, The Untouchables, Marcus Malone, The Jives UK, The Roosters and John Crampton plus there are tracks from three more of this month’s IBBA Picks of the Month with 24 Pesos, The Laura Holland Band and Robin Bibi & Tony Marten. To top it all off, two great tracks from The Robin Robertson Blues Band and Zoe Schwartz & Rob Koral Quintet.

A magical melange of top tracks!
