And so it is September and to start the month off this week’s edition of Digital Blues on Gateway 97.8 is crammed full of new and recent releases for your listening pleasure as well as a couple of interviews.

At the recent Le Buis Blues Festival I caught up with Dave Arcari and Layla Zoe and you can hear our chats along with a couple of tracks from both of them.

Plus there are tracks from Henrik Freischlader, J.T. Lauritsen & Friends, JP Blues, Snarky Dave & the Prickly Bluesmen, Jeff Jensen, Cyril Neville, Moreland & Arbuckle, Pristine, Groove-a-Matics, Buddy Guy (the IBBA Album of the Month) and Nathan James  & the Rhythm Scratchers.

In the gig guide there are tracks from Lincoln Durham (whose UK tour has sadly had to be cancelled), the Guy Tortora Band, David Migden & the Dirty Words, The Swamp Cats and The Elevators plus we look forward to the inaugural Blues at Broomhill Festival with tracks from 24 Pesos, L R Phoenix and Simon ‘Honeyboy’ Hickling.
