The original supergroup, Crosby, Stills & Nash, have been nabbed for Bluesfest 2011.

Three lifelong friends, from a sing-along in either Joni Mitchell or Mama Cass Elliot’s kitchen (the guys differ on this point!) to a debut gig at Woodstock in front of 500,000 plus, have delivered countless hits with their timeless harmonies and melodic folk-rock.

David Crosby had previously played with folk-rock group, The Byrds, Stephen Stills with Buffalo Springfield and Graham Nash sang with the outspoken political group, The Hollies.

More than 40 years on, despite the turbulent times in which they existed as well as the often volatile climate of their own inner-workings and personal lives, they continue to make music that connects with fans around the world.

Also confirmed this week are The Specials, Lucinda Williams, John Hiatt & The Combo, Donovan – Angelique Kidjo, Seasick Steve, Keb Mo, Nick Lowe,  Rosie Ledet, Seth Lakeman, Harry Manx, Fabulous Thunderbirds and Alabama 3

The 23rd Bluesfest will take place over the Easter Weekend April 5 – 9, 2012 at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm just outside Byron Bay for the third year running.
