CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Giles Hedley & the Aviators

Giles has been singing and playing roots blues across UK and Europe since the sixties, on bottleneck and lap steel guitars, acoustic and electric, and harmonica - his trademark is simultaneous nose-and-mouth harmonica playing, see A regular on blues festival and club circuits both solo and with The Aviators, featured repeatedly on national radio in England and France, Giles is, in the words of blues magazine Blues in Britain, " a mainstay of British blues" or as Blues Matters puts it, "one of Britain’s foremost roots and country blues performers". His solo work recreates the passion, grit and fire of the delta blues greats - Son House (with whom Giles appeared in the Seventies), Kokomo Arnold, Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell. His band The Aviators is a funky, danceable roots-blues trio steeped in early Chicago blues. Earthy slide and steel guitars, a unique rack harmonica style, a passionate, Wolf-style voice, adventurous bass and drums right up front in the mix create the unmistakeable Aviators sound, quite unlike other British blues bands
