Bluesfest Adds Joss Stone, Black Sorrows, Chain

Bluesfest has added another 11 acts for 2014 with Joss Stone, Chain and Black Sorrows leading the latest announcement.

Also playing in April are Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience, Dyson, Stringer & Cloher, The Beards, Glenn Cardier and the Sideshow, Nahko @ Medicine For The People, Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Cambodian Space Project and Matthew Curry.

“Joss Stone was only a teenager when she last played Bluesfest – she has since been chosen by Mick Jagger to be co-lead singer with his band Superheavy – and released some of the most sizzling soul albums of the century,” said Bluesfest director Peter Noble. “Her performances are show stoppers. She is just one of ‘those’ artist who will forge one of the great long term careers in music – in fact she is already doing just that”.

Locally, Noble is equally excited to have Chain and the Black Sorrows on the bill. “We have the long awaited return of two of Australia’s great bands in Chain and The Black Sorrows – they each in their own way define Australian Roots and Blues music, are bona fide legends, and are still performing at the top of their game . Bluesfest 25 would not be complete without them,” he said.

Of course sometimes its about who you have to knock back. ”Putting together the talent to play Bluesfest for our 25th Anniversary Festival has not only been about who to put on this year – it has also been about who to leave out,” he says. “So many artists want to play, and we just can’t fit everyone in, and of course the unavailability of a few artists is always sad but you get that every year.”

Bluesfest will also feature Gregg Allman, Biz Scaggs, Dr John, Doobie Brothers, Gary Clark Jr, Jimmie Vaughan, KC and the Sunshine Band, Aaron Neville, The Wailers, Kasey Chambers and Booker T Jones.

Bluesfest will be held from April 17-21, 2014 in Byron Bay.

Tickets for Bluesfest are available from ticketmaster.com.au
