This year's Gloucester Blues Festival included an "open mic" and jam session at The Cross Keys Inn, hosted by Mark Cole of Sons Of The Delta. This event was great fun and a big success; the pub was crowded with blues lovers and there must have been another twenty folks outside in the lane. I attended the session with Pete Harris (also from The Deep South of Hampshire) and we were both welcomed warmly by Mark and Rick and given the opportunity of playing a few numbers to a very enthusiastic audience. At the end, there was a lovely finale-cum-jam with the inpromptu blues band playing The Thrill Is Gone, which included a couple of superb guitar solos from Pete Harris played on a borrowed Goldtop.
