Jed and Sandy's Big Adventure teaser 14 May 2015
A new generation of award-winning American blues acts will make exclusive appearances at this year’s Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival - all thanks to two Edinburgh musicians who scouted the States for potential performers.
A few weeks ago, and with the help of EXPO funding we sent two of our favourite blues artists, Jed Potts and Sandy Tweeddale, on a mission like no other. They would travel to the home of American blues to find the very best blues performers in America today and then bring them back to the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.
And so armed with only their passports, and an ear for the finest in blues, Jed and Sandy travelled the highways and byways of the USA, from San Francisco to Memphis to Mississippi. On their way they documented what they found in a video travel diary - and we're delighted to give you a quick taste of the full film, which should be released very soon.
You can watch the teaser trailer below.
