BLUES AT BRIDGETOWN Announce 2021 return


Following a quieter 2020 event due to the pandemic, Blues at Bridgetown returns to the South West this year from Friday, November 12 until Sunday, November 14 with an all-star Western Australian line-up.

Highlights include the “Grandfather of Australian Blues,” Matt Taylor, who will be performing two special shows telling the history of blues in Australia, including his part in it; while Vdelli will be on stage after unleashing their most impressively diverse studio album to date, NOW.

A bona-fide Blues at Bridgetown favourite, Toby Beard is back and armed with a new album, What Happens To The Heart; while Karski Daly Blues is an outfit that grew out of The Nervous Investors and The Heavy Hitters, both righteous acts on the Perth blues scene for some years, joining forces after the passing of Roy Daniel, bassist for both bands.

Lincoln MacKinnon & The Wrecking Train combine uplifting choruses, heartbreaking harmonies and a barely contained menace to produce music that is as powerful as it is memorable. With his third single for the year, Bad Blood, soon to be released in October, Dan Howls will set the stage for one of the most menacing and ecstatic live shows going around.

Complementing this lineup will be Ashes Of Autumn, Mossy Fogg, Michael Day, Tracey Barnett, Theona Councillor, Two Dollar Dog, Martin Lee Cropper, The Plympton Push, The Moody Cows, and Derek Lee Goodried with many more soon to be announced.

The festival will introduce a Free Community Hub this year with market and food stalls including a Community Stage, where the festival opening will take place on Friday, November 12. In the evening the free entertainment will continue as WA’s Blues Clubs take the stage.

Blues at Bridgetown is a non-profit community association producing an annual music festival since 1993. Held in the second week of November each year, the three-day festival showcases blues and roots music, attracting visitors from across the state, interstate and overseas.

Blues at Bridgetown hits Bridgetown from Friday, November 12 until Sunday, November 14. To buy tickets and for more info visit bluesatbridgetown.com.au
