Every week on The Keynote Club, Bob Hall – one of Britain’s finest blues and boogie pianists – treats listeners to an hour of the best and the rarest in blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues, interspersed with quirky humour from his vast personal collection.

Lil’ Jimmy’s visit will be a treat for all blues fans. 75 year old Jimmy – AKA Leon Atkins – has had a lifelong love of music. He picked up his first guitar, made from an old cigar box, at the age of six.

Jimmy and Bob will be playing together at a gig at the Greystones on 31 August and Jimmy will join Bob to co-present the Keynote Club in an episode to broadcast on Wednesday, 28th August – don’t miss it!
