The third edition of the Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea cruising festival will take place next year, promoters have confirmed.

Registration is now being taken for a pre-sale opportunity for the event, which begins on February 6 at Tampa, Florida, and ends on February 10 at Costa Maya, aboard the Norwegian Jade.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
