2:30 – 3:30 BJ COLE & JOE PAPA

bj coleB.J. Cole is is regarded as one of the world’s pre-eminent pedal steel guitarists and as a live and session musician has played with just about everyone there is

Today he joins forces with his collaborator of many years, Joe Papa, to bring you Country Blues and Rock ‘n Roll as it should be played


photoMartin Fieber, the ‘Sultan of Slide’ is perhaps the UK’s best kept slide secret. He brings his hugely talented band ‘The Customtones’, one of the finest, and tightest, units around to Broomfield. Martin is not known as the Sultan of Slide for nothing, he makes all his own guitars under his ‘Customtone’ label and the tone and the sound he achieves is staggering; some of his original material is equally wonderful. The rest of the band are all masters of their instruments with Mick Parker on drums, Terry Duggan on bass and Steve Taylor on keyboards.
