The Midlands

Welcome to the 'Midlands' section of the Early Blues website.

Having renewed contact with an old school friend, Steve Wosket (last seen some 35 years ago - really!), we re-lived our schooldays and passion for the blues (in those days there were very few blues records available in England). Steve now lives in deepest Herefordshire (cider country) and regularly goes to blues gigs in the area. We thought it may be interesting to set this section up and publish details and photos of some of the gigs for you. Here are some of them.
