    In an act of pure optimism (I’m still trying my best down here €pi-Brethren) I’ve locked in on 6x 5 Day Passes to next Easter’s BluesFest...

    Mrs Eggs & I will be accompanied by my music buddy since I was aged 14, Andrew, & his wife Julie (now a sailing buddy of Mrs Eggs), & also by another buddy since the age of 4, John, & his wife Alison...

    To confuse matters, Andrew & John are virtually cousins, so there better be some Bluegrass on the bill...

    Speaking of which, the first ‘artist announcements’ are due at 7am this Wednesday...

    & that’s only two more sleeps :applause:

    Niiiice first Artist Announcements...

    &, as an indication of the quality here & yet to come, look how far down the bill Walter Trout is, & that Bros. won the Grammy for ‘Best Blues Album’ of 2017.

    & we got our wish re some Bluegrass in the opening lineup.

    I’m thinking (read: hoping / praying) Walter might jump up & do a couple of numbers with John Mayall for a bit of a Bluesbreakers reunion... & seeing as Neil Finn is taking time away from his new gig with Fleetwood Mac to regroup with Crowded House for Bluesfest 2020, perhaps he might bring Mick Fleetwood with him to add to the Bluesbreakers ‘alumni’ :fingersx:

    Not sure why DMB is on the bill, but you'll LOVE Kingfish.
