New Brunswick Battle Of The Blues Update

Cherry Lee Mewis will be appearing st the Beeston heat 
After long and difficult deliberation the 30 acts have been chosen for the 5 heats around the country that will take place in January. I’m glad to say I’ve been invited to be a judge at the Glasgow heat and am looking forward to it a great deal. 
The winner from each heat will go to London for the Grand Final on March 29th – along with the best runner up as voted by the audience. The winner of the Grand Final will go to the Heritage Jazz & Blues Festival in New Brunswick next September – all expenses paid.
