Veteran Echonetdaily photographer Jeff Dawson has probably caught more performers in the act up close at Bluesfest than you can think of, and much more than his peers on the job this year.

Some of those photographers weren’t even born when Jeff first snapped away at world-class acts during the early Bluesfests at Belongil Fields more than 20 years ago.

St Paul and the Broken Bones were another big draw with a soul sound to die for. They play again on Monday.

Below’s gallery of pics is just a sample of some of Jeff’s work at Bluesfest on Friday and Saturday at the purpose-built festival site at Tyagarah.

As usual, Jeff captures the essence of each act through his lens so vibrantly.

His catalogue of music festival photos are on www.offmyfacebook.com.au (For some instagram fun follow: echojeffd)
