This week on Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 I look forward to the Uckfield Blues & Roots Festival and the Tuesday Night Music Club’s first anniversary special. And I remember JJ Cale, have a slice of birthday cake for Buddy Guy, tracks from the IBBA Picks of the Month and loads more.

So join me, J.J. Cale, Buddy Guy, Grainne Duffy, Devenport, Nigel Bagge Band, Sam Kelly’s Station House, Will Wilde, Ben Poole, David Migden & the Twisted Roots, Red Butler, Long Tall Deb featuring Colin John, Big Daddy Wilson, Guy Tortora, Rob Berry, Dave Hunt, Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro, Jon Cee Stannard & Blues Horizon and Nuno Mindelis.

And, in the gig guide, tracks from Tim Aves & Wolfpack, Laura Holland Band, Seasick Steve and Martin McNeill

Phew, I’m exhausted just typing this!
