Cruising into the new year, with the Blues

Cruising into the start of 2022, let’s look ahead another 90 odd days from now… until we throw the gates open to Bluesfest – and boy, are we looking forward to it!

Browsing through our artist’s websites we came across some clips – some old – some new… that got us all a bit excited to see that happening LIVE on our Bluesfest stages. Look, listen and dream with us Bluesfesters… it’s not that far away!

HOODOO GURUS・‘TOJO’

Live at ‘Dig It Up!’ in Sydney sees Dave Faulkner and the guys rip through this early classic. Can’t wait to see this ripping off the Bluesfest stage.

THE WAR & TREATY・‘FIVE MORE MINUTES’

What a beautiful clip! – and a wonderful live version of this song lifted from their ‘Hearts Town’ album. Recorded during the lockdown, this clip was shot at The famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

CHRISTONE ‘KINGFISH’ INGRAM・‘BEFORE I’M OLD’

Live on eTown, CHRISTONE ‘KINGFISH’ INGRAM sets the bar high in the first 30 seconds with a blistering opening solo… and then continues to raise it – raise it – and raise it again. Bluesfest – can’t wait!

THE LIVING END・Live in Berlin 2018

Why have one of THE LIVING END‘s songs when we can have a full set thanks to Berlin Live? It’s a couple of years old but let’s be clear, they are a ferocious beast and have lost none of their explosive performance energy. Close your eyes, and it could be Bluesfest in a few weeks’ time.
