BluesFest Thursday 18th

Afro time – Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, backing singers and his 12 piece band sound much like The E Street Band, playing with homage to all the great American soul and blues music from Motown to New Jersey – lots of paisley shirts and guitar solos.
Little Steven’s big band – that big fat wall of sound, sound.
I never thought I’d see Arlo Guthrie sing Alice’s Restaurant all the way through, word for word just like the album released over 50 years ago. He reminded us this year is the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, where he played. He’s a real trooper, tells some great stories and sings Bob Dylan just like Bob, he’s also a pretty fancy guitar picker – this is one of the reasons I go to BluesFest.
This is the ideal way to rough it at BluesFest, a double axle caravan with the pop top roof.

This was originally a travel journal to share with family and friends but when home again it became a general blog about anything that came to mind – but now I'm travelling again, this time wandering the streets of Italy – do check in. Ciao baby!
