Today’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 is a cracker as I look forward to Blues on the Farm and the Linton Festival, both of which take place this coming weekend. And, of course, there’s the gig guide and tracks from all four of June’s IBBA Picks of the Month plus a few new arrivals.

Do join me and The Jive Aces, Mud Morganfield & Kim Wilson, Kaz Hawkins, Brothers Groove, The Hoax, Layla Zoe, The Juke Joints, Rosco Levee & the Southern Slide, Billy Walton Band, Ryan McGarvey, Erja Lyytinen, The Della Grants, Babajack and Matt Woosey.

In the gig guide I have Malaya Blue, the Riotous Brothers, Bad Influence, Hamilton Loomis, Steve Morrison & Alan Glen and The Elevators and then there are tracks from Mississippi MacDonald & the Cottonmouth Kings, Kat Baloun & Tomi Leino Trio, Lucy Malheur, Little Devils and Zoe Schwarz Blues Commotion.

Woooeee! I like it!
