11 more acts have joined the Bluesfest line-up including Australia’s Glenn Cardier, Jeff Lang and Lloyd Spiegel.

In a statement Bluesfest boss Peter Noble said:


The Blues announce at Bluesfest is one I always look forward to.

Headlining this year of course is the King of the Blues – Buddy Guy for 2 exclusive plays, along with the swathe of Blues, and Blues friendly artists already announced, including, Mavis Staples, Bonnie Raitt, Booker T and the Stax Revue, Dumpstaphunk, Nikki Hill, St Paul & the Broken Bones, The California Honeydrops, Gregory Porter, The Record Company as well as the truly amazing Beth Hart.

You may not know this guy, however, we are so proud to announce Eric Gales, the sublime guitar player that Joe Bonamassa describes as the Best Glues guitar slinger of the lot right now – I guess when he says that, he is including himself. This is a do not miss for Blues fans – he WILL blow you away! Next is Mud Morganfield, performing his own songs, as well as the songs of his dad – the one and only Muddy Waters.

We are pleased to welcome back Devon Allman, who just had a Number 1 album on the Billboard Blues charts. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, well in this case they are 100% right, except it may have been a peach. The son of Greg Allman, from the legendary Allman Brothers, continues to spread the legacy AND the groove.

Experience Jimi Hendrix is an Australian production featuring Jak Housden, the founder of the Badloves, Dai Pritchard, who was Billy Thorpe’s right hand man who also plays with Rose Tattoo and Steve Edmonds of Hoodoo Guru’s fame. They regularly sell out venues such as Sydney’s Enmore theatre with this very authentic show honouring Jimi – enjoy.

Davy Knowles (formerly of Back Door Slam) will blow you away. He is simply a brilliant guitarist and a do not miss!

Melody Angel: Regulars at Buddy Guys Legends nightclub in Chicago may have seen her play there. She is supremely talented – yet another don’t miss Blues artist.

The amazing Blind Boy Paxton is returning by popular demand. The Aussie contingent includes Lloyd Spiegel, Jeff Lang, Glenn Cardier and the Ray Beadle.

Along with those already announced, we have some truly amazing Blues artists performing this year for your enjoyment – a mix of new and returning Blues artists – right up the alley of any Blues fan, so let’s get into it at Easter! Can’t wait!
