Reggae pioneer Jimmy Cliff, famous for the songs ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ and ‘Many Rivers To Cross’, leads the announcement, along with the voice of Yes, Jon Anderson.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue are appearing at Hamer Hall in Melbourne and Enmore Theatre in Sydney with the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Newcastle are getting a treat from this outstanding New Orleans outfit when they do an intimate club date at Lizottes on April 1st (no fooling!)

Also on the list are the First Lady of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson, and soul singer-songwriter Bettye Lavette, along with Jake Shimabukuro, Shawn Colvin, Seth Lakeman and Ben Caplan.

Previously announced sideshows include Roger Hodgson, Joan Armatrading, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Rodriguez and Newton Faulkner.
