Gig List for Season 4 – a pretty heavy schedule with eight new songs per gig including many original compositions often learnt on Thursday practice the night before the gig – a real memory test!

A subset of the BBC5 (Jon, John & Martyn) continue to play at local events including Blues in Schools as the BBB3 or BlackHill Barrow Boys named after an important local neolithic site – the Long and Round Barrows on Black Hill in Bradley.
