saturated in the blues

(the first ever Carlisle Blues Festival – 23rd – 25th November
Friday night to Sunday lunch time a plethora of live blues with some of the BEST blues artists around.
Friday night was Tantrum – very young guys who were so cool they didn’t know they were. Fantastic guitar. Then there as Ian Parker Band – an old fave, and to finish a late late evening was Marcus Malone – a man who could flirt for England. We got home at around 2 and it was f-f-f-f-freezin!
Wandered back to Carlisle at lunch time – He saw Eugene Hideaway Bridges and Steve White while I shopped! I joined him in time for the luscious Connie Lush and Blues Shouter – raspy, grinding, sleazy blues. Then we had a nice Italian meal nearby before heading back for a full evening of a new band to us – The Stumble (my highlight of the weekend!) followed by super sleazy Ian Siegal and closing with Nimmo Brothers. I was well and truly saturated by blues and very tired. On Sunday He saw a brief bit of Ian Siegal and friends while I shopped (AGAIN!). A brilliant festival; well organised and stuffed with quality music.

Photos to follow!

After that we went around the corner to see the film American Gangster. Pretty good.

Stumble it!
