The tour in Poland last week was great fun, with some lovely gigs in good venues. I ate so much food I could hardly walk, and spent some time with some lovely people.

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!
