This week’s Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 I feature a comprehensive look forward to the Broadstairs Blues Bash which takes place over the weekend 21st to 23rd February 2014.

Reflecting the great variety on offer I have tracks from Jamie Williams & the Roots Collective (their brand new CD), The Blueswater, Brothers Groove, Tim Aves & Wolfpack, Katie Bradley, The King Bees, Rosco Levee & the Southern Slide, Richard Townend, Wooden Horse, Mississippi MacDonald, Bad Influence, Bare Bones Boogie Band, Kris Dollimore, Babajack, Paul Lamb & the Kingsnakes, David Migden & the Dirty Words (or should that be Twisted Roots!), Kat & Co, Little Devils, Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke, King Size Slim and The Untouchables.

In the gig guide there are tracks from Cherry Lee Mewis & Max Milligan, Big Mamma’s Door and The Spikedrivers plus a brand new reissue from Eric Bibb with Taj Mahal and, to finish, a rip-roaring instrumental from Jimmy Thackeray.

I can hardly wait!!
