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!

“Try Anything Twice” is the new CD from award-winning Scottish Blues Band Blues ‘n’ Trouble. With nine original songs from the band, and four R'n'B classics, "Try Anything Twice" ranges from classic blues to psychedelia, representing the retooled and reinvigorated Blues 'n' Trouble line-up that has been packing theatres and delighting festival audiences in recent months. Title tune "Try Anything Twice" is also the lead track on the second "Jock's Juke Joint" compilation of contemporary Scottish Blues, released 22nd November. Led by top UK Blues singer and harmonica player Tim Elliott, Blues ‘n’ Trouble has forged an international reputation over almost 30 years as a hard driving, good time Blues and Boogie outfit. Rising from the depths of Livingston, Scotland, in the early 1980s, Tim Elliott and Blues ‘n’ Trouble journeyed from their Edinburgh base to secure an international audience and fan base, touring incessantly across the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, and as far as the Memphis Blues Festival, working with blues greats such as BB King, Robert Cray, Pinetop Perkins, Charlie Musselwhite, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells. Their Chicago blues inspired sound, delivered with take-no-prisoners attitude and barely controlled energy behind Tim’s impassioned vocal and harmonica, caused BB King to remark that B ‘n’ T were “the best white blues band in the world” - an opinion reinforced by the winning of a prized WC Handy award for their collaboration with Lazy Lester (“Lazy Lester Rides Again” - re-issued on CD in 2011). Now sporting a line-up incorporating Tim Elliott (vocals/harmonica), Sandy Tweeddale (guitar/vocals), Angus Rose (keyboards/guitar), Rod Kennard (bass) and Andy Munro (drums), Blues ‘n’ Trouble has recently made a number of Festival appearances in the company of the great Scottish Blues and Rock singer Maggie Bell, and is heading for 30th anniversary celebrations with all the fire and swagger for which this top British blues band has always been renowned.
