He won the Lifetime Achievement award in 2016 at the British Blues Awards.
UKBlues Federation undertakes the organising, running and overseeing of the annual awards. This organisation is an Affiliate of the Blues Foundation and an active member of the European Blues Union as well as the organiser of the annual UK Blues Challenge.
