Charlie Bedford – Good To Go
Label: Blue Heart Records
Releasedatum: 22 mei 2020
Charlie Bedford closes the set with the somber delta duet with Hanger, ‘Blues For John,’ fulfilling his dedication of the album to the memory of former Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society president and fellow jammer, John Jerman, who was a pillar of the Aussie blues community. A young man with a bright future, Charlie Bedford is indeed “Good To Go,” and this strong release should take him where his dreams lead.
