Photos from The Rockin' Race

I'm back from sunny Spain to freezing England but the memories of this year's Rockin' Race Jamboree near Malaga remain. Here are some of the artists who appeared. First, here are a couple of the singer who, for me, was the star - Dale Watson.
Also very good were Los Straitjackets, who backed up a highly amusing double act involving Big Sandy and El Vez, the Mexican Elvis.
Of the other acts, one who I particularly enjoyed was Marcel Riesco, whose voice closely resembles that of Roy Orbison.
Sadly, there were few female acts on the bill and one who was, Alice Jayne, was disappointing.
I was impressed by Swedish band Fatboy.
Another decent band was German outfit Smokestack Lightning.
And I really liked the Cactus Blossoms, who sound uncannily like the Everly Brothers.
There was a fun set from The Big Six, featuring Sugar Ray Ford on vocals.
There were several shows taking place at the Barracuda Hotel, including this one with Eddie Angel, Big Sandy and Smokestack Lightning.
Also Glenn Doran and the Prairie Echoes.
Plus The Tacomas.
