Blues on Broadbeach have today dropped a second lineup announcement led by internationally acclaimed superstars Wolfmother.
Wolfmother and popular blues master C.W. Stoneking join a lineup of previously announced Aussie rock royalty including Tommy Emmanuel and Christine Anu.
ARIA and Grammy Award winning rock icons Wolfmother are no strangers to big festivals, having performed at Coachella and Lollapalooza. This will be their first appearance at Blues on Broadbeach; are a huge addition to a line-up already brimming with talent.
Another first timer is ARIA Award winning C.W Stoneking, who hails from Katherine, NT. C.W. takes blues all the way back to its roots with a 1920’s pre-war jive and a jazzy New Orleans twist. With someone like Stoneking performing, the blues will truly be alive in Broadbeach in May.
Festival Director, Mark Duckworth says, “The second round of artists coming to the festival in May will make for another memorable year. As a music lover, the best thing about Blues on Broadbeach is the multiple styles of music we get to present, all stemming back to the original blues sound.”
For those that know Blues on Broadbeach, they would know Ray Beadle, Lloyd Spiegel, and Fiona Boyes.
Beadle is the genuine article, playing guitar from his heart and soul since the age of nine, learning from the greats and carving out his name through his exhilarating live sessions.
Spiegel has been touring since the age of 12, having played alongside greats such as Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, and Etta James. His talent has placed him in the Australian Guitar Magazine’s top 50 guitarists of all time.
“After the madness of 2020, I can’t think of a better way to return to music than performing at Blues on Broadbeach.” Lloyd Spiegel claims.
“It’s an event that truly represents and embraces the Australian blues community, and now — more than ever — that community needs a chance to come together, relaunch and move forward. I’m so looking forward to seeing this amazing FREE showcase of Australian blues talent back in full swing.”
Boyes has been described as soulful, authoritative, and a ‘musical anomaly’. As a repeat-nominee at the Memphis Blues Music Awards, Fiona is taking her slide-guitar styles from the heart of Louisiana to the international scene with her band The Fortune Tellers.
Also on the second lineup announcement is Mason Rack Band, Hamish Anderson, Mojo Webb Band, Nick Charles, BB Factory, Lecia Louise and more. Visit bluesonbroadbeach.com for full details, and get a taste below:
