11th September 2013
Posted by Ashwyn Smyth

As the weather takes a distinctly autumnal turn, this week’s edition of Digital Blues is packed full of new and recent releases for your listening pleasure: blues guaranteed to take away the chill!

There are tracks from Johnny Lang, Buddy Guy (this month’s IBBA Album of the Month), Sugaray Rayford, Smokin’ Joe Kubek & Bnois King, Ana Popovic, Joanne Shaw Taylor, The Rides, Andres Roots Roundabout, Will Wilde, Mojo Makers and Wooden Horse.

There is a slice of birthday cake for Mike Thomas (the Cadillac Kings – see the gig guide below) and  Clive Mulcahy with a track from Bad Town Blues and I also send congratulations to Erja Lyytinen with a live track from her.

In a busy gig guide there are tracks from Split Whiskers, the Cadillac Kings, Gentleman Tim & the Contenders and Moreland & Arbuckle and I look ahead to the harvest Jazz & Blues Festival in New Brunswick with tracks from David Migden & the Dirty Words, Cassie Taylor, the 24th Street Wailers, Marcia Ball, Steve Strongman and MonkeyJunk.
