London Blues Festival

WHAT: The London Blues Festival is a week-long extravaganza of blues, soul, roots and jazz, held in some of London’s funkiest, most interesting venues. It’s the first outing for this festival, and if it takes off it promises to become a welcome fixture on London’s musical calendar.

WHEN: May 15-22.
