Upton Blues Festival 2007
Saturday
21st July 2007

Michael Roach Workshop
 
www.michaelroach.com
Michael Roach's workshop was an interactive performance that traced the beginnings of blues from work songs to modern rap/hip-hop. Demonstrations involved audience participation in hand clapping and hand patting games that demonstrated rhythm and rhyme. There would have been a visual display consisting of an old wind up victrola, blues 78s, sheet music and 1920s blues adverts - but the floods meant Michael came to Upton direct from a gig in Lincoln - overnight - and he couldn't get home to pick up the material.
Thanks, Michael (and for your band) for your efforts in getting to Upton. It was greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the quality - I was fleeing the floods and was surprised the Barflys were still playing!


Groovyhead
 
 

I wasn't able to see Groovyhead - they were playing at The Muggery Pub and it was so packed I couldn't get in to take any photos. So here is a biography and two photos from the band.
