My friend and talented musician Tom Atkinson has had a hand in organising this gig. Tom and his band Victims of the Fury have supported The Groundhogs before, with Tom joining the onstage for a few numbers too. Like many folks of a certain age, I listened to The Groundhogs incessantly for several years, but recently I have only listened to one or two tracks – mainly their blues influenced stuff. But I will certainly be at this gig. Discussions are underway with Tony McPhee to see if we can arrange an acoustic blues session for broadcast on the Blues Show. Tom and VOTF are also coming in to the Blues Show studios to perform an acoustic set on Monday 1st Feb.
