Saw a post on a forum where someone was touting UK bands to come over and play. We have always been lucky to have many talented musicians locally, and many of the UK based artists that visit regularly have become firm favourites and are always a very welcome change. We also have a number of travelling US based bluesmen, and artists from Canada that regularly add to our enjoyment.
There are also many new bands this summer and some have become the best of the best including D & The Roots, Essencial Rock and Kaliquenos to name but three; they provide the extra energy and new blood needed to keep the music live and good.
Not sure what these touted bands would add, if the offer was taken up.
