A retired TV executive who made programmes about the arts is heading up a new blues band performing at Shaftesbury Fringe.
Alan Benson used to produce and direct TV’s ‘The South Bank Show’ and ‘Omnibus’.
Last autumn he formed the five-piece group, Kind of Blue.
He talks about the group’s influences and explains why people who don’t think that they like blues music should attend their Grosvenor Arms Hotel gig at 2.45pm on Sunday 7th July.
