The founding of Britain's first dedicated electric blues club - The Ealing Blues Club on March 17 1962 by Alexis Korner & Cyril Davies was to be the catalyst which sparked the Blues boom of the '60s and subsequently British Rock Music. Mojo Magazine has described Ealing as: 'The Cradle of British Rock Music'. The Ealing Blues Festival, which started in 1987 celebrates this heritage and is now London's longest running Blues Festival.
