festivals review section of earlyblues.com. Over time we hope to include
many reviews and photographs of blues concerts and festivals in the USA
- a little tricky as we are based in England, but with the help of our
new US based contributor,
Kirk Lang, plus our regular trips over the 'pond',
we will endeavour to bring you a selection of the vast number of blues
events in the States.

effortlessly around the fretboard .....
