Gerry Jablonski Electric Band – The classy international globetrotters deliver high-octane blues-rock. One of the tightest and hardest hitting bands on the current scene.
Gus Munro - Great vocalist –guitarist crossing classic acoustic blues with hard edged singer songwriter
Toby Mottershead - A tour of early blues and roots music from guitarist Toby Mottershead bringing the sounds of the Delta and the Hill Country; the jug bands and juke joints back to life.
Jed Potts & The Hillman Hunters - Three piece electric band playing blues inspired by 50s and 60s American classics, led by one of the most popular guitarists/vocalists in the country: Freddie King ballads to hypnotic Muddy Waters grooves.
Nicole Smit - Charismatic and captivating, Nicole Smit’s blues-drenched voice ranges from blues and r’n’b to soul.
