Australian Blues Fesitival
Hosted by historic Goulburn, the Australian Blues Festival kicks off on Thursday 7th February for 4 days of music held held in a variety of venues throughout the CBD. There are over 70 free-entry performances as well as a number of high-profile ticketed shows.
Promoter Geoff Bell told the Goulburn Post that “the festival had been steadily growing over the past few years” and expressed excitement that Jeff Lang and the Bondi Cigars would be headlining. The line-up features acoustic and electric acts with a range of styles from the roots of blues music to the music that has been influenced by blues.
Other entertainment includes Australian Blues Music Chain Awards, open mic/jam throughout the weekend, Youth in Blues Jam, Pro-Jam, vintage guitar and amp shop, workshops with the artists, buskers and markets.
