Hi from the UK

Just thought I'd better introduce myself. I'm Jay and I'm from sunny (yeah right) Clacton On Sea, on the east coast of England.
My interest in the blues is a fairly new one, having listened to various forms of jazz, funk and soul for most of my adult life. I (accidentally) heard a Luther Allison version of 'The Thrill Is Gone' and that was it for me.
I'm now torturing my partner and daughter learning to play harp (my dog is none too pleased either).

bye for now
Jay

Hi from West Sussex, and another would-be harp player. I went to Frinton for the day once in the 1960s ...

I picked up a Luther Allison live in Paris CD the other day. It's good.

Welcome aboard, and watch out for details of next year's UK get-together. The last one was great.

Wow!! Great welcome guys!!

SRVLIVES - Thanks mate, I dunno what a woollyback is, but if you say I'm one, then I must be one, or something........

Sandy - you don't want to go to Frinton! (it's where my future in-laws live).

Future In-Laws - If you read this (unlikely I know), I was just kidding.

bluesmouse - Great slide on those mp3s, loved 'Devil Got Me Runnin'. Maybe I should go away and come back when I've grown some musical talent.

Everyone else - thank you for making a newbie feel at home!

later
Jay

Thanks for the kind words and for checking out our site Jay. 'Devil' is probably the best thing I've come up with so far -I still have lots to learn about the blues too and the great thing about this place is that we all learn together (ah....).
As Sandy said, we will be holding our second get-together of UK BRB members in March -it would be great to see you there (and our other new UK member-Damn_Dog- too). No further details about it yet but watch this space.

Jay: Welcome. People told me to shut up my harp for years, then the the same folks were paying to see me, and yelling "encore". The harp is a great instrument. Enjoy it. Walter
