RIP: ‘Big Al’ Groom

Posted on: Wednesday, Apr 29, 2015

Some sad news just in from Pete Evans:

Just heard that ‘Big Al’ Groom  – known to blues fans at all the gigs and festivals in North East Wales in Wrexham, Worthenbury, Bangor-on-Dee and Overton-on-Dee – passed away last night.

He was going to celebrate his 50th birthday at Overton-on-Dee Festival next Saturday. He’ll be sadly missed by all who knew him and a kinder man it would be hard to find.

Sincere condolences from Blues In The North West to all Al’s family and friends.

That is such a shock. What a lovely fellow.
