Bluesfest hump day and the rain came


It wouldn’t be Bluesfest if we didn’t get a bit of rain and at the halfway point yesterday afternoon, the heavens open to hear the sweet tunes drifting up from Tyagarah and the rain fell.

The downpour didn’t stop the punters or the performers have an great day at Blues with some unforgettable sets hitting the stage.

Though there were some powerhouse big acts, the highlight for me was Irish Mythen who sang of Jesus and love and whiskey in her lilting silk.

The day saw a lot of awesome repeat performances from the likes of Con Brion, D’Angelo, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote, Steve Earle, to name few, and of course The Wailers who are playing a set of albums over four nights.

The tickle factor for day 3 was the Pierce Brothers who were so excited to be playing their first Bluesfest that they were like a pair of kids in a lollie shop.

Today I am hanging out to see Graham Nash’s second spot and some Ash Grunwald as well as some UB40, The Decemberists, the Arakwal Dancers, Mojo Juju, The Cat Empire, Tenzin Choegyal and Melissa Etheridge.

Have a great Easter chocolate lovers and others…
