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!

Strut - Shades of Blue (Stevey Hay Band)

Good time blues expertly delivered with soulful vocals, a swinging rhythm section and a fistful of emotion drenched guitar pyrotechnics. Great time guaranteed! Stevey has been burning up venues since his early days in Edinburgh. Fluent in a variety of guitar styles from Surf to Jazz, Blues remains his first love. He has toured as harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite’s guitarist, and appeared on stage with Robert Cray. “No nonsense, inspired blues guitar magic” - Border Events NEIL WARDEN - GUITAR Neil is well known for his funky blues style of guitar playing, having performed at many international festivals for the last 25 years with Scottish Blues/Jazz singer Tam White. He also recorded on Tam' s last 5 CDs along with ex Bad Company/King Crimson bass player Boz Burrell. Neil also toured and played in West End Theatre shows (London) with cabaret performer Camille O'Sullivan. “Neil has a style and technique which is envied by many. His amazing dancing fingers conjured up a variety of blues riffs and licks throughout the performance, to the fascination of all.” Orkney Gazette (Orkney Blues Festival) DAVE SWANSON - DRUMS Dave has played in a variety of styles for over 40 years with people as diverse as: Demis Roussos, Stanley Baxter, Ronnie Corbett, Francie and Josie, Humphrey Lyttleton, Georgie Fame, Zoot Money, Louisiana Red, Acker Bilk, Al Cohn, Bobby Watson, Roy Williams, Tal Farlow, Louis Stewart, Red Rodney, Carol Kidd, Benny Waters, Charlie Musselwhite. Long time member of Alec Shaw trio and Tam White and the Dexters. PAUL MANSON - BASS Making it look deceptively easy, Paul's understated bass playing has been the solid underpinning of countless Scottish bands for longer than he likes to be reminded. Sensitive in his approach to all musical genres, he has complimented a diverse catalogue of local and International performers. Also a long time member of Tam White and the Dexters.
