Tonight’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 is a cracker as I look forward to two great blues events taking place in the Basildon/Billericay area this weekend – Bluesey Day at the Farm at Barleylands and the Billericay Beer Festival. Plus, comme d’habitude, there’s the gig guide and tracks from all four of June’s IBBA Picks of the Month and a few new arrivals.

So get on down with me and Seasick Steve, Bad Influence, Tim Aves & Wolfpack, Joel Fisk and the Breakdown, Guy Tortora, Spikedrivers, Roy Mette, Tim Aves, Owen Barry, Bob Haddrell, Sam Kelly and Tony Mearing, Erja Lyytinen, Little Devils, Zoe Schwarz Blues Commotion, Split Whiskers, Blues Consortium, Blues Spiders, Dave Ferra, Katie Bradley, West Weston’s Bluesonics, Mississippi MacDonald & the Cottonmouth Kings, Paul Jones, Mike Vernon, Delta Moon, The City Boy Allstars and The Chris Corcoran Trio
