Australian Blues Music Festival 2013

The Bondi Cigars will perform at the Workers Club on Friday night.

THE Australian Blues Festival kicked off on Thursday for another year, with more than 70 free shows and 30 artists to provide the best in Aussie blues and roots entertainment over the weekend.

Founded in 1997 as a small gathering at the showgrounds, the festival has developed over the years to gain widespread support from the Australian blues industry, being dubbed “Australia’s peak blues event” and “the top Australian blues venue” by some.

Organiser Geoff Bell told the Post Weekly that this year’s line-up is sure to impress, boasting a variety of blues styles and sounds to appeal to just about anyone.

“Every single band isn’t going to appeal to every single person but there is something out there for every person,” he said.
