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.

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