National Tour – ROI – Musicians

Seeking registrations of interest from Blues musicians/bands to support a (potential) UK tour with an Aussie blues band.


Tour TBC subject to Covid/Travel/Venue restrictions, hopefully in 2021.


Please email ROI together with brief bio and a couple of recordings and if possible, potential availability in terms of time.

Dave Hunt/Allan Grainger

Prominent Lincolnshire Bluesman, Dave Hunt has formed a new collaboration with renowned acoustic guitarist, Allan Grainger.


The pair have been practising social distancing whilst Allan gets to grips with some of Dave’s songs from his previous albums. This time though, they are stripped back, basically with Allan on guitar and Dave doing vocals and harp.


Speaking to LAAMB about the new project, Dave said that he wanted to to something a bit different from his previous solo and band work and had been working with several other local musicians over the past eighteen months. He added that it really works with Allan, and rather than start afresh with new songs, he felt more comfortable reinventing some of his own earlier tracks.


Dave & Allan have now recorded a video (on Youtube)  to go with their cover of “Roadhouse Rosie” (previously included on Dave’s “100 Horses” CD).


The song and video are published on the LAAMB channel on the Drooble platform.


Blackbird – Sound Art

I’ve been promoting my experimental sound art EP Lost Dreams during lockdown, with some tracks previously broadcast as part of the Dark Outside radio and Kurt Schwitter’s Merzbarn in Cumbria.


Lost Dreams was produced in the Sleep Lab at the University of Lincoln, and was funded by Amazon. All information is on my website.

Dukes de Luda are BACK!

The track is now featured on the LAAMB Drooble channel as well as on the new charts page to be published tomorrow (Friday 7 Aug).
