Street Corner Blues Win North East Battle of the Blues Heat.

The north east heat of this year's New Brunswick Battle of the Blues - held at Redcar - went to Street Corner Blues. Street Corner Blues, a duo comprising Chris James (vcl/gtr) and Martin Fletcher (hca), were, reportedly deserving winners.
I was delighted to hear this as I remember Martin well from my time working in Windows Music Shop where he bought many a Blues Harp, Marine Band, Special 20, Lee Oskar etc. from me over the years. I in turn bought a Hardisty racing bike from him which I still have although it hasn't been pedalled for a number of years.
We wish you both all the best for the final.
