Little Jenny & the Blue Beans (Scandinavia)            web.comhem.se/littlejenny
Sweden's only all woman blues band: Little Jenny, vocals/harp/guitar - Mia Kempff, bass/vocals - Lotta Partapuoli, guitar - Justina Lakin, drums.

The set consisted of mostly original songs featuring the guitar of Lotta Partapuoli and vocals and harmonica of Little Jenny. As stated by the band most of the bands songs were about sex and food, such as, I Ainít No Left Over, Surgery Blues (about cosmetic surgery), In My Head and Good Rocking Daddy. An original take on playing drums was demonstrated with the drummer and bass player playing drum solos on their ample bellies. Intriguing!

Chuck Berry (US)                                           www.chuckberry.com
Chuck Berry, guitar and vocals - Darin Ingrid Berry-Clay (Chuck's daughter), harmonica and vocals
- Charles Berry Junior (Chuck's son), guitar - James Marsala, bass - Jean Michel Biger, drums
- Daniel T. Rossing, piano

Chuck and his band ran through a selection of well known songs including; No Particular Place To Go, Sweet Little Sixteen, Reeling and Rocking, You Never Can Tell. A number of blues standards were also aired including Everyday I Have The Blues, Rock Me Baby and Keys to the Highway. The one song many of us were hoping that Chuck would not play was of course included as an audience sing-along Ė My Ding A Ling. However, it was good to see a legend of rock n roll in Cumbria.
