I just wanted to post my very positive comments about the first CBG festival in the UK, held last weekend (3rd October) at the Crossroads Blues Club, Birmingham, UK. It was hosted and led by Chickenbone John, ably aided by Ken Stratford and friends and staff at the venue. It was a fascinating day, I learnt a great deal, met some great people, heard some even better playing, and to cap it all off Hollowbelly played the main gig at the end of the day. What more could you want? It was great success and I already look forward to the next one!
