Welcome to Helena

In case you didn’t know the bluesinthenorthwest.com and Worthenbury Blues Club away team will be working hard over the next week and a half in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas to bring you back tales of musical merriment and blokey fun.

Yes indeedy, a van load of Welshy boys and a Cestrian tyke will be spending what we plan to be a great week hanging around bluesy sites in Mississippi before heading across the border to West Helena, Arkansas for the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival (formerly the King Biscuit Festival).

I will be tweeting now and again over at http://twitter.com/kenpeace.

Hasta pronto y’all.

Something not quite right with this, working hard, I think not. Drinking and eating hard more like it. Have a great time, I’m not in the least bit jealous :-(

Too right Bob . . . the ‘working hard’ will be taking the tops off beer bottles, consuming steaks and ribs and pointing their cameras in the right direction :-)

Whoah! Steady on there lads, I’ll never get away with it if everyone realises that it’s fun and not work.

No blues tonight – Sunday is a quiet night.
Might sample a beer or two though.

Could be a scorcher at the weekend.

The festival is kinda between Little Rock and Memphis.

Festival all over. An amazing time. Just packing the case. We’ll be hitting the road in 15 mins. A couple of hours in Clarksdale then home via Memphis and Schiphol.
