‘Bluesfest Touring’ presents Music Maker Blues Revue

Bluesfest is honoured to bring this integral blues institution back to Australia and proud to be taking these musicians on the road for the first time.

Far too often true musical pioneers become forgotten heroes and the music they played such a part in creating is forgotten along with them.

Music Maker Foundation is fighting the good fight to keep the blues and southern roots music alive and pay homage to these incredible musicians.

This inspired and inspiring non-profit North American organisation is dedicated to give back to the roots of American music.

After truly moving, humbling and beautiful performances over the years at Bluesfest, we knew 2013 would be the year to take this incredible foundation on the road.

This year we’ll be featuring The Music Maker Blues Revue featuring Boogie Woogie legend Ironing Board Sam, Guitar slinging siren Pat Wilder, Alabama bluesman Dr. Burt and Zydeco giant Major Handy, with Albert White, Nashid Abdul Khaaliq and Ardie Dean.


TICKETS: $55+bf (on sale Wed 23 Jan) –
