It's fair to say that we're all very excited here at CherryJam camp about Cherry and the band's recent addition to the all star billing of BluesFest London which this year takes place at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall from Tuesday 29 October – Friday 1 November. This is the first full-scale music festival of its kind to be hosted at the venue, with performances taking place not just in the main auditorium, but also in other spaces around the Hall during the daytime.

In the evening there will be two concerts each night, taking place in the early and late part of the evening in the main auditorium. Headliners include Robert Plant, Van Morrison, Bobby Womack, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Chris Rea amongst others. BluesFest will also celebrate the music of the recently departed legend, Bobby Bland - this promises to be an unforgettable evening with an all-star line-up on Friday Nov 1st which indeed includes Cherry on this date, performing at 3.45pm in the Cafe Consort.
