British Blues Awards 2011 results

Giles King of Hokie Joint guesting with Tim Aves & Wolfpack

I was at Newark Blues Festival in the grounds of Newark Castle on Sunday, for the announcement of the British Blues Awards. I had a great day meeting friends old and new and watching 4 great bands (videos to follow).

I particularly enjoyed the bit where I was announced Runner Up in the Best British Blues Broadcaster category! Considering the winner was Paul Jones from BBC Radio 2, and I’m a volunteer on BishopFM, a community radio station, I feel quite proud of my achievement. Thanks to everybody who voted for me!
Well done too to all of the winners!
