The Australian Blues scene just seems to get better each year with the number of festivals increasing and the quality of music getting hotter and hotter. With the continued rise of Blues in Australia Thredbo being one of the longest-running Blues festivals in the country, has a high reputation to maintain.
To keep the Thredbo Blues Festival reputation high we just have to keep raising the bar which is exactly what we have done in 2020. Just to name a few we have the amazing Tyrone Vaughan with Darren Jack Band, Dancing in the Shadows, Blue Rinse with Ray Beadle, 8 Ball Aitken, Foreday Riders, Shane Pacey Trio, 19 Twenty, Charlie Bedford, Andrea Marr, McNamarr Project, Claude Hay, Pyscho Zydeco, Mike Elrington, Steve Edmonds Blues Quartet, Liza Ohlback Trio, Grace & Hugh, Michelle Vandermeer, Richard Perso, Phil and Trudy Edgeley, Swamp Stompers and more to be released soon!
We look forward to seeing all the festival’s familiar faces plus a whole bunch of fresh new faces – there’s heaps of great music for the old and bold as well as the young and young at heart.View more
