What? Blues pub crawl in Wageningen
When? 21 and 22 January
Where? Lots of pubs in the town centre
Normally I just come as a spectator and go round the pubs with my friends, my wife, and last year with my son. This year, though, I am performing myself with my band Sinner's Prayer. I want to see as much as I can in between the setting up and the playing. There are two tremendously good bands that evening, like the Twelve Bar Blues Band, which has been declared the best blues band in Holland. Howlin' Bill from Belgium is very good too. How did I end up getting into the Blues? When I was 12 I heard an LP of Livin' Blues at a friend's. I earned some money on a paper round so I went straight out and bought three of their LPs. Years later I met them once, which was really nice.'
