Jock's Juke Joint

Over the last fifty years, many renowned blues performers have emerged from Scotland. Early pioneer, Alex Harvey led a generation of blues influenced Scots, including Tam White, Jack Bruce, John Martyn, Frankie Miller and Stone The Crowes. Each experienced success and fame far beyond this small country. The next cycle saw the emergence of Blues N Trouble and Big George  & The Business amongst others. In recent years the Nimmo Brothers and Dave Arcari have established themselves on the European blues scene.

Until now there has never been a Scottish blues album. With signs of a new resurgence of the blues in Scotland, we felt this should be rectified. Although it does not feature the esteemed acts mentioned above, Jock's Juke Joint includes musicians who performed alongside them, and many new emerging talents. It is an exciting time for Scottish Blues with both established musicians and young performers forming great new bands. This collection was put together to showcase the great original material being produced by Scottish blues artists. Indeed, as there is so much we'd like you to hear, we are already working on a volume 2. It is also hoped the collection will give Scottish blues a wider profile. We've provided details of each artist included so please investigate further and help them flourish.
