Friday 11 July 2014: Dereham Blues Festival: Paul Jones
Today (Friday) is the first day of the 3 day Dereham Blues Festival, only 5 miles from my home. Run by Norfolk Blues Society, this is its second year. It launched tonight with a ticket gig (the rest of the festival is free, the bands playing in local pubs) featuring the Dave Thomas Blues Band with special guest Paul Jones, formerly of Manfred Mann and latterly performing and recording across the world with the likes of Eric Clapton. Tickets sold out many weeks ago!
