The Mighty Blues News

Blues news, I hear you ask? This is the place for Swmapgrass focused blues news.  Keep up to date with all things in the Swampgrass blues world including news from tours, gigs, music we are listening to and how the next album is coming along. We haven’t been great at posting regular news posts in the last year so we’re going to turn that around in 2017 and hope to bringing you tales of travels, album news, some great special gigs and the usual festival mayhem. We love to hear from you so why not keep in touch by posting comments or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Check back regularly and if we’re not posting often enough you can make fun of us online.
