On tonight’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 I look forward to the 1st Essex Delta Blues Festival which takes place on Saturday 21st March 2015 in Chelmsford with tracks from some of the artists appearing.

I have tracks from Ruby Tiger, Roy Mette Band, Blues Spiders, Blues Consortium, Martin McNeill, The Jives UK and Jamie Williams & the Roots Collective.

In the gig guide I have tracks from Mississippi McDonald and the Cottonmouth Kings and Blues Situation and then it is new & recent releases time with tracks from Mike Wyatt, Thomas Ford, Cécile Doo-Kingué, Eliza Neals, North Karelian Allstars, Dan Burnett, Robin Bibi & Tony Marten, Ian Siegal, 24 Pesos, The Mighty Boss Cats, The Laura Holland Band, Jeff Jensen, The Mike Henderson Band, Moses Jones and Jeff Chaz>
