Euro Blues Week, University of Northampton, 1-6 August 2010.
I joined a team of ten tutors for this annual residential course organised by the Euro Blues association.
As well as daily keyboard instruction, a great opportunity to meet and play with blues guitarists, vocalists and harmonica players. Watch the video I made:
