Jed crams the story of the mission into a 3 minute song in the tradition of a “talking blues”; a song format popularised during the Great Depression by the likes of Woody Guthrie.
Jed Potts has performed sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival with Jed Potts and the Hillman Hunters, records and tours with American blues artist Brandon Santini, and fronts Jazz Bar residents Swampfog.
