Launching the Scottish Blues Weekend 14 Jan 2019
Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival launches a new annual winter Blues Festival – dedicated to the best of the Scottish Blues scene. Each year we’re going to ask a leading blues musician to select a programme and first up is Scotland’s champion of classic blues, Richard O’Donnell. He’s selected “the very best current and new generations of Scottish blues musicians in more traditional and authentic styles of blues music”, and with the added bonus of two of the very best International blues artists in the classic style, as guests for the weekend: Øyvind Stølefjell and Big Jon Atkinson.
The programme features:
Friday 22nd February
Saturday 23rd February
Sunday 24th February
