Sunday saw some of the Bluesfest big guns roll out – Jackson Browne played a massive one and a half hour set as did Melissa Etheridge – neither disappointed the legion of punters pressing against the barriers to see them.
Ash Grunwald was blistering on Jambalaya – Ash filled the stage with a horn and rhythm section and a pearler of a guest spot from Kasey Chambers who lifted the lid on the tent.
As would be expected, The Cat Empire went totally off – it’s too easy to see why this band is a Bluesfest favourite.
Jerome ‘Blind Boy’ Paxton played his third of four shows and you would be absolutely mad not to catch his last show today, this dude is phenomenal!
The Boomerang Dance Ground has plenty on offer, Rosealee Pearson was one of the many artists in the Healing Tent where she wove her magic for those gathered in that space.
There was just so much juicy goodness and today promises more of the same!
