The Southsea Folk And Roots Festival was held in Southsea, Hampshire, England over the holiday weekend of 23-25 August 2008. Monday was "blues day", with performances from a wide variety of singers and players throughout the afternoon on South Parade Pier. In the evening there was a grande finale with Mike Sanchez and his band. There's a photo of me playing slide on my National Radiotone Bendaway guitar here on this site under "photos" ( Click the link to my Flickr site to view). This year, I played solo, doing seven blues favourites. When this photo was taken by ace photographer, Arlene Kennedy, I was playing the RL Burnside classic, Miss Maybelle.
