Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival has released a short film covering the exploits of two of Scotland's favourite blues musicians, Jed Potts and Sandy Tweeddale, who went scouting for blue talent to bring back to the festival.

The film shows them travelling across the USA, from San Francisco, to Memphis and Mississippi, seeing performances and meeting up with three blues musicians (Brandon Santini, Ben Rice and Mr Sipp) who'll be coming to Edinburgh for the festival (17-26 July 2015)

The trip was supported by Scottish Government Expo funding and has resulted in gigs for each of the three musicians featured as well as collaborative performances between themselves and Jed Potts and Sandy Tweeddale.
