Welcome to the
section of the Early Blues website.
Well its about time I had a section dedicated to Scotland.
May I introduce to you.....
Mike Whellans... the one
man blues band
Kid Wardell .. on the British Blues
scene for almost 50 years
Papa Mojo -
Son Henry -
Jock's Juke Joint
Over the last fifty years, many
renowned blues performers have emerged from Scotland. Early pioneer, Alex Harvey
led a generation of blues influenced Scots, including Tam White, Jack Bruce,
John Martyn, Frankie Miller and Stone The Crowes. Each experienced success and
fame far beyond this small country. The next cycle saw the emergence of Blues N
Trouble and Big George & The
Business amongst others. In recent
years the Nimmo Brothers and Dave Arcari have established themselves on the
European blues scene.
Until now there has never been a
Scottish blues album. With signs of a new resurgence of the blues in Scotland,
we felt this should be rectified. Although
it does not feature the esteemed acts mentioned above, Jock's Juke Joint
includes musicians who performed alongside them, and many new emerging talents.
It is an exciting time for Scottish Blues with both established musicians and
young performers forming great
new bands. This
collection was put together to showcase the great original material being
produced by Scottish blues artists. Indeed, as there is so
much we'd like you
to hear, we are already working on a volume 2. It is also hoped the collection
will give Scottish blues a wider profile. We've provided details of each artist
included so please investigate further and help them flourish.
