In 2008, Alex McKown was taken backstage at The Muni, Colne during the blues festival to meet some of his blues idols.
Roll forward 9 years - Alex is now 20 - and he is appearing on the very same stage at #ColneBlues2017 as his idol Walter Trout (who had headlined in 2008).
Alex commented just the other day "Wow! It was my dream that I would play that stage one day - dreams do come true!" Alex McKown is now a six times finalist in the British Blues Awards and his songs have been played on radio stations all over the world.
