PADCAST 34: THE BITTERSWEET FEAT. MARCUS BONFANTI

MARCUS BONFANTI

This week, Marcus Bonfanti and I celebrated our British Blues Awards with (amongst other things) a Padcast! We play Marcus’s award winning song ‘The Bittersweet’. Who knows, maybe an album in the next year or so?! Look out for my bro on camera duty…

WINNER OF BEST KEYBOARD PLAYER! BRITISH BLUES AWARDS

I’m really happy to announce that I won ‘BEST KEYBOARD PLAYER’ in the British Blues Awards 2012, today! The awards cerememony was at the Newark Blues Festival, in the grounds of the old castle there, a beautiful setting. It was a fun day with loads of familiar faces. I was also very glad to see Marcus Bonfanti win the ‘Kevin Thorpe Memorial Award for Best Original Song’ with his awesome song ‘The Bittersweet’.  I was also pleasantly surprised to have a call from Paul Jones to ask to collect the award for ‘Best Harmonica Player’ on his behalf.A little jam on ‘Cold Shot’ was preceded and followed by some nice ales. All in all, a good day!
