Tombone Kellie.

An eclectic and diverse mix of live music, with a big nudge of blues and roots, this little festival kicks off again showcasing blues, funk, country, jazz, gypsy, rock and more and this much-loved event is absolutely free.

The brilliant line-up includes six class acts from the Northern Rivers region including Jimbob, The Magnificence, The Linelockers, Trombone Kellie, Cool Shot feat. the fat blues guitar sounds of Mal Eastick, and The Hoochers.

A Show ‘n’ Shine will begin at lunchtime and continue throughout the afternoon.

This year’s event is being coordinated and funded by local community members and businesses, working behind the scenes to bring back this little festival to the region.

Village Blues is a family-friendly event with a focus on live and local music – by community, for community.

The Dunoon Village Blues Festival is on at the Dunoon Sports Club on Saturday, October 29 from 1pm.
