This week on Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8, I look forward to two great blues festivals taking place this weekend – Ealing and Upton.

I have tracks from Big Boy Bloater & the Limits, Rabbit Foot, Andy Twyman, Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson, Jerimiah Marques, Connie Lush & Blues Shouter, Robin Bibi Band, Tim Aves & Wolfpack, Kat & Co, Jules Carter Trio, Larry Miller Band, The Spikedrivers, Will Wilde Band, David Migden & the Twisted Roots, Zoe Schwarz & Blue Commotion, Rosco Levee & the Southern Slide, Stomp & Holler and the Laurence Jones Band.

In the gig guide there are tracks from Layla Zoe, Rollo Markee & the Tailshakers and Martin McNeill’s Bottleneck Blues.

A great appetiser for two excellent festivals.
