I woke up this morning, missing my honey-pie (The Maryport Blues)

Well it’s was a totally terrific 10th Maryport Blues festival, right down to the glitter golden wristbands.  Due to limited internet connectivity a fuller report with pictures will be blogged later.

Chuck Berry was (a) alive and (b) brilliant,  Jools Holland had the tent jumping,  Jimmy Vaughn played the (electric) blues brilliantly, Sherman Robertson,  Alvin Youngblood Hart, Jeff Lang, Earl Thomas, Ian Parker, Chris Farlowe, and Ian Siegal put on fantastic performances.  Marc Almond (guesting with Jools) was, well Marc Almond and Ruby Turner was stunning.
