Two days in Åmål, day 3 coming up
Saturday, 10 July 2010 09:10

It's morning July 10 2010, and I've just had breakfast here at Åmåls Bluesfest. So far, the festival has been better than expected, but not exceptionally so. Some good points is that the tent that replaced the old "storehouse" is even closer to where I am usually staying. And the settings in the tent, although smaller than before, is still good, so I am happy and the Åmål Blues Society has done an excellent job keeping the festival going, despite the fire this winter.

Last night (Friday) the #1 gig, for me at least, was Tailfragger! A great gig! Others to mentioon was Kirk Fletcher Band and Jump 4 Joy as usual, I was about to write. Ulf Sandström of Jump 4 Joy fame received the Åmål Blues Award this year by the way.

i took some photos yeasterday to be published later, and Åmåls Bluesfest was great at giving me a Photopass as usual, so I could get good access to the stages.

Take care

Shots from Tidaholm
Friday, 18 June 2010 13:00

A bunch of shots from the Dusty Road Blues Festival in Tidaholm, featuring the Harmonica Blowout with West Weston, Sven Zetterberg, Anders Lewen and others are available now! This festival was pretty good, with many good bands and a nice setting. Beer quality was way below acceptable standards though, but all in all, it was fun, but a bit cold. I hope this festival can continue next year. Also, I will publish more shots eventually!

Curtis Delgado at Biscuits and Blues
Thursday, 08 April 2010 16:07

I'm in San Francisco right now and last night I went to see Curtis Delgado at Biscuits and Blues. This was an excellent gig, although Curtis seems to have a cold or something, and wasn't as active as I expected, rather, guitarist Lloyd Jones did the singing and also a lot of solos. Which wasn't bad, Jones is a very talented guitarist and band leader.

All in all, a good night and a good gig at the best Blues Club in SF and one of my favourite blues venues.

Around eastern there is a Eastern Festival at The Regent Pub here in Stockholm, arranged by Rhythm n' Roots (Anna Bergman) and featuring a bunch of bands in different styles, as is expected when Anna is arranging things. I'm not sure I'll be able to, but I hope to spend at least one night there. The dates are april 2 and 3.
