Top ‘gig’ recommendation for this week is alt.blues troubadour Dave Arcari – his Blues’n2s livestream series on Facebook still has two more episodes to go with a session on Monday 3rd August, 8pm UK time, with guest Ismo Haavisto from Finland.

(The final episode in the series is on Monday 10th August, @ 8pm with Ted Drozdowski from Nashville, Tennessee, followed by a full concert livestream on Monday 17th).

On Thursday 13th August there should be a home livestream , via Facebook, from Mt. Doubt, with mainman Leo Bargery – and he’ll be doubtless (!) playing tunes from forthcoming long-player ‘Doubtlands’.

And another couple of regular live slots – Hamish Hawk will entertain you on Instagram Live, from 4pm on Sunday 9th) and on Facebook.

Gordon ballboy also presents a regular live session, usually available on Sunday @ballboymusic from 9pm on Instagram, and occasionally on Facebook, and always uploaded later the next week to listen to again on Bandcamp.
